It All Started with WACKER ACADEMY Europe

When we opened the first WACKER construction-chemistry training center – the VINNAPAS® ACADEMY – in Burghausen in 2007, we quickly realized that we had a hit on our hands. Demand for seminars that linked the basics of construction chemistry with practical training was huge. construction experts from all over the world began coming to Burghausen as early as 2008 to broaden their knowledge. And so WACKER ACADEMY was born – a unique service offering within the industry.

Whether at work or at home: WACKER ACADEMY is there for you – not only at 14 different locations worldwide, but also digitally.
