Advanced training as dental administrative assistant (ZMV)

A live online seminar with many possibilities

What are the advantages of the “night owl course”?

Continuing education that takes place in the evenings and on weekends offers many benefits to working mothers. Here are some of them:

Work-life balance: Because the training takes place outside of normal working hours, working mothers can continue to work full-time without affecting their work schedules. In addition, they can use the time when their children are at school or kindergarten for other tasks.

Career advancement: continuing education can open up new career opportunities or help you move up in your current position. It can also help people learn new skills or improve existing ones, which can boost confidence and job satisfaction.

Flexibility: Evening and weekend courses are often more flexible and better suited to the needs of working mothers. Some courses could also be available online, providing even more flexibility.

Social interaction: Attending training also provides an opportunity to meet new people and socialize. This can be especially valuable if you spend most of the day working or caring for children.

Personal satisfaction: training can also help achieve personal goals and foster a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction. It can help build self-esteem and feel like you are growing both professionally and personally.

Modeling positive behavior for children: Working mothers who continue their education can set a positive example for their children. They can show their children that learning is a lifelong process and that it is important to constantly develop and acquire new skills.

Through our part-time training concept, you can put what you have learned directly into practice and gain the relevant professional experience during the advanced training.

Of course, the path of professional development does not end there. You can, for example, take the advanced course to become an FZP (Fachwirtin für zahnärztliches Praxismanagement – specialist for dental practice management) and continue your education in the areas of team leadership, practice management, business administration, etc., thus expanding your areas of competence and responsibilities in the practice. If you want to work not only in administration but also practically with patients, you can be certified as a dental assistant (ZMF) through our ZMF modules and thus position yourself as an all-rounder in the practice, which qualifies you for many areas and makes you employable.
