know how

You can go from being a COSIMA beginner to a COSIMA expert with our training programme, which is divided into three phases - basic training, specialisation and expert knowledge. You can join the programme at any time and in any phase: What matters is your ambition to use our Component Content Management System even more efficiently to make your everyday editing work easier.

To make a first step into the COSIMA world, you will acquire the tools, which every COSIMA editor should master in the basic training phase. After a thorough introductory training COSIMA go! Getting started, you will learn new helpful techniques and functions in the advanced training course COSIMA go! Advanced. At the end of this training phase, you will have mastered the editorial system and can receive a DOCUFY Academy certificate if you wish.

Not everyone has to be able to master everything: In the specialisation phase, you will deepen your knowledge in a very targeted way depending on the tasks you need to complete with COSIMA - be it on the topic of translation management, COSIMA administration, graphics editing with callout editor IGEL or creating layouts with DOCUFY Layouter. Anyone who has acquired specialist knowledge in at least two key areas and completed at least 12 hours of training will also receive a DOCUFY Academy confirmation here.

Phase 3 Expert Knowledge takes you to the higher levels of COSIMA: Creating scripts or Schematron rules requires a great deal of COSIMA know-how, but considerably expands your possibilities in COSIMA. If, after the basic training and the specialisation in COSIMA, you have also completed the two expert training courses, your COSIMA expert certificate, the large COSIMA expert knowledge certificate, awaits you.
