Expert courses

Save money with your continuing training events by MedicalMountains.
The funding program “expert courses”  is an opportunity for everyone from Baden-Württemberg.

The federal state of Baden-Württemberg, with the support of the European Social Fund (ESF), sponsors selected full-day seminars and all certificates courses of the MedicalMountains Training Program 2018 by granting the participation fee.

The general course funding is supplemented by a grant for participants without a vocational qualification with a subsidy rate of 70% on the course fee (regardless of the age of the participants). The criterion “without vocational qualification” meet participants who have not completed vocational training in a state-recognized training occupation and also no degree. If a foreign degree is (still) not recognized in Germany, the condition “without vocational qualification” is also fulfilled.

Important notice!

Please fulfill and send the target group inquiry (with the result that you belong to a target group of the subsidy program for specialist courses) as well as the participation questionnaire to us signed back at least one day before the start of the first seminar for which you have registered. Applications submitted too late, incomplete or not signed can not be considered for funding.

With your application for funding from the “expertise courses”, you consent to the collection of personal data for the purpose of monitoring and evaluation as well as the transfer of these data to various bodies involved in ESF funding.

You can find the complete funding regulations at

The support is not limited to a seminar participation. Multiple participation is possible and welcome.

The funding for participants without a vocational qualification can be taken for the first time for courses starting from 1 September 2018.

The subsidy will be deducted directly from the fees. You only pay the reduced participation fee!
