Arcteq Product Training April 9-12, 2024

Please note: The Product training on April 9-12 is now fully booked! The interest has been beyond our expectations, and we now need to inform that we are not able to accept additional registrations for this training. But not to worry, we have already started preparations for a product training event in the autumn. This training will be very similar to the training that will take place now in April. We are also looking into extending the number of seats to accommodate more participants. More details will follow.
