Practice-oriented Specialist Knowledge

Footwear and Leather Industry

With the foundation of the International Shoe Competence Center Pirmasens (ISC Germany) we created a portal providing access to a treasure trove of expert knowledge. The offerings include an extensive range of training and further education programmes, an internet-based database, and a state-of-the-art production line for training purposes, for sample production, and for testing new production methods.

All questions relating to marketing, footwear production, footwear, leather goods, and leather apparel are addressed at ISC Germany. The training and further education offerings for the footwear industry and trade disseminate practice-oriented specialist knowledge about all aspects of footwear. ISC is involved in the following state educational courses:  

  • Footwear maker
  • Industrial master craftsman for footwear technology
  • State-certified footwear technicians (German College of Footwear Design and Technology)
  • Bachelor of Engineering, subject area Leather Processing and Footwear Engineering from the Kaiserslautern / Pirmasens University of Applied Sciences

Training courses tailored to the requirements of industry and commerce are developed for an international audience. The trainers are experienced specialists in their respective areas, ranging from footwear fit via materials science and testing to quality characteristics, complaints, and manufacturing defects.
