The Institute of Microtraining was founded in 2010 in Innsbruck, Austria, by Dieter Duftner. As the first adopters of microtraining in Europe, the Institute’s goal is to establish a set of high standards for effective and continuous education, in both stand-alone and long-term training programmes.

Investing in employees’ continuing professional development in a way which suits their levels of expertise will boost productivity and retention, resulting in an increasingly satisfied workforce. Developed by leading educational theorists, microtraining is now best practice for delivering succinct and effective training for business, based on the social constructivism learning theory, that learning is an active process which must be tailored to each learner, and the connectivism theory, that knowledge is best acquired through collaboration and communication.
