Frequently Asked Questions

What is the maximum number of participants for the live online training courses?

The maximum number of participants is 2 PER MACHINE (or offline Seat of CALYPSO where applicable).

In which language are the training courses held?

We are currently only offering Live Online classes in English. Are you interested in training in another language, please contact us at software training @zeiss .com.

From a content perspective – is there a difference between classroom and live online training?

The learning format does not influence the content of the training. When a course (e.g. ZEISS CALYPSO Basic) is offered as a classroom and live online training, you can be assured that we teach exactly the same content. Note that the exercises and teaching methods are optimized for the live online training environment, as the classroom lectures and activities are not always as effective in other situations. 

How can I find out, whether I am registered for a training course?

You will receive a confirmation of your course registration by email. Your registration is only complete with this written confirmation.

Are there any technical requirements and recommendations to ensure a great training experience?

To join the live online training, you will need a computer with a stable Internet connection, and preferably speakers and a microphone. You may join the training’s audio by phone if your computer does not have audio capabilities. Training can also be viewed via a Tablet or Smartphone app – your instructor will supply that information to you. Also, a quiet room helps to better focus on the training content during lecture times. Depending on the course, you may need to be able to use your physical CMM to complete exercises – internet connection at your CMM is preferred, but NOT NECESSARY.

  • a quiet room that you can use alone during the test
