Knowledge transfer on wet process equipment

We support you in the continuous qualification of your staff in semiconductor manufacturing. The AP&S Academy offers you individual training formats and training modules on all aspects of wet process technology.

Do all the handles and tricks on the equipment in your semiconductor fab really fit? Do your staff really know everything there is to know about your wet process machines? Are newcomers and cross-career employees already confidently familiar with the wet processing equipment technology? Are you getting the most out of the wet process equipment?

These questions are crucial to success. Our answers are provided by the AP&S Academy!

If your personnel know the production equipment including all functions, settings and technical details, high productivity in your semiconductor production is secured. Our goal is to achieve exactly that.

Training on-site in customer's fab

Our professional AP&S Academy training experts train your team at the wet process tool on-site in your fab.

Training in the AP&S Training Center

In our inhouse training center at the AP&S headquraters in Donaueschingen (Germany) we make your staff fit in wet process technology.

Online Training

Presence is not a must. If on-site training is not possible, your team gets the wet process skills at our online training.


With our long-term coaching program, your team gets an expert! Who is at your side for a regular exchange and advises you on all questions concerning your wet process tools.

Training your team is an investment in the future

These are your benefits

The fact is: If the handling of the equipment is known and trained, this leads to a reduction in downtimes, to the assurance of product quality and to increased safety for people, equipment and wafers in the process.

Professional training is a sustainable instrument to prevent the shortage of skilled workers and to retain employees. By continuously building up knowledge in your team, you can cover your personnel requirements in the long term and secure your company's growth.
