From mechanics to dispatchers and maintenance engineers to designers, every Circet employee and partner is a specialist in their field. Day in and day out, they make an important contribution to tomorrow's vital infrastructure. The Circet Academy is at the heart of this.
How does Circet ensure that every employee and partner meet the highest standards in terms of quality, safety, regulations, certification and customer requirements?
The answer: Circet Academy, which provides training for all Circet colleagues as well as subcontractor employees. Every aspect of telecoms, network technology and smart energy applications is covered.

The Circet Academy is Circet's internal training centre. In the academy, Circet develops training and education programmes both internally and together with external partners. The goal? To give everyone - from new colleagues to seasoned experts - the chance to develop themselves in their fields.
Trainees are trained to become specialists in Kontich, Evergem, Flémalle (Belgium), Hedel and Tilburg (Netherlands). At each location, the focus is on different themes.
The academy in Tilburg offers training in infrastructure and charging stations. Trainees are Circet employees as well as employees of subcontractors. "All courses are structured in the same way," says trainer Maykel Pigmans. "The first half consists of a combination of learning in practice and theory. In the second half, the trainee takes many practical classes."
The intake of trainees is hugely varied. So not only trainees with no experience, but also employees who have been in the business for years attend the academy. Academy manager Jeroen Waelbers: "We make sure that eventually everyone leaves the academy with the same level of knowledge and, if necessary, the right certifications."
Inexperienced trainees deserve extra attention, explains HR Director Peter de Vries. "People who want to make the switch to the telecoms industry are welcome. No work experience or technical knowledge? No problem at all! Wat matters most, is the will to learn and ambition. If you have this mindset, Circet is happy to train you to become an expert in telecom or smart energy applications."
