Start today - learn value engineering

Value Engineering can be integrated in your regular engineering activities. Why not begin today? Start your personal training or arrange a  training for your colleagues.


Learn how to get the design you deserve

Secure the design that matches the vision and aspirations of you and your client. A design improves when value engineering is used. It ensures that the design aligns with your core needs and objectives. It is a proactive approach to sound decision-making. Stimulate yourself, your designers and stakeholders to go beyond the ordinary. Urge them to innovate and think critically. By doing so, you foster an environment where creativity meets functionality, ensuring you get the optimal solution. Not the mediocre should be accepted, but the strive for excellence in every design aspect. Use value engineering and learn it from good trainers.

Target: Best Value For Money

The ultimate goal of a good design is to create Best Value for Money. Proven, smart, and accepted by stakeholders. Auditable for financers, preparing and answering all questions from decision makers for every investment.

Teamwork make designs better

Value Engineering boosts collaboration, improve design processes, uniting teams and stakeholders to improve designs. We guide engineers in achieving optimal value. Our courses effectively enhance services, systems, and processes.


Adding value

Where a design influences cost, outcomes, and profitability – be it in Civil, Machine and Manufacturing, or Process industries: 'All cost is for function'. How can we train and assist you in maximizing your values?


Skilled teachers

Together we have over 50 years of experience with Value Engineering training. We love to train talented individuals and enjoy guiding their progress.


Various levels of training

Training on multiple levels - certified, and lots of trainings made to measure. Physical live, or online blended VE-learning. Mixed groups, or in-house. That is what we do.



Our training courses are certified according to best academic and industrial practices. Cross certifiable, around the globe. Best of both worlds: EU and USA. Sustained Knowledge Acquisition!

Training value engineering

Focus on personal development - small groups,
lots of personal attention.

Dedicated trainers - enthusiastic, certified and highly experienced.

Intense, rewarding and energising!

Our courses

We specialize in educating skilled professionals: from designers to project managers, line managers to planners, business strategists to maintenance staff, and researchers to sales teams. No role is beyond our purview.

Our instructors aren’t just internationally certified, they apply their extensive knowledge in large-scale value engineering studies. They’ve worked with a wide range of organisations and showcased their expertise on global platforms.

Our presence extends across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, positioning us to understand and serve varied cultural and business requirements. Opt for our proven training programs and international expertise.

Digital Shift in Value Engineering Training

We moved from traditional classrooms to online settings amid the Covid-19 pandemic. We created an online teaching platform. Grounded in robust pedagogical principles and advanced software, our platform merges well illustrated content with dynamic e-learning and live interactions. We call it VElearning.

Learners can study flexibly, at lower costs than traditional classrooms, benefiting from the same interaction as in-person training.

On the job training

Who wants value engineering? From milk to metal.

We've worked with many groups, from those turning milk into sweets up to factories that change iron into gold or tap into the sun's power. Whether they're in business to earn, serve the community, or are government entities, Value Engineering optimises.

Learn how to use your resources better. We offer training, support, and education on one simple principle: how to get the most value for your money.

Get started today

Contact us to discuss your project. Think about trying our 'learning while working' approach. The training reduces costs and improves your project, discover that yourself. We have a 3-hour starter class: two hours online and one hour of live examples with a video meeting for questions. And a VM1 which is the most important foundation training to start with Value Engineering.

Training in programmes, empowering teams

We gave value engineering training in many programs. After this, many project teams changed their approach, focused better on the desired outcomes, and improved their communication with stakeholders. This helped reduce problems, made plans clearer, and saved a lot of money. The return on investment for the Value Engineering activities is huge, often earning more than 1,000 times its cost.

Asset Owners and financers

Who stands at the forefront demanding the utmost value? Precisely! It's the owners, financiers, and those who take risks. Both external and internal teams play a pivotal role in reviewing and optimising. To truly embed this value-centric mindset, consider our VM1-training. This equips teams to focus more intensely on deriving the best value.
