Courses at Omix

Although we deploy our professionals to aid high schools, colleges, and universities to further improve their educational logistics and by extension improve the education being taught, Omix is also a vocational school to learn the skills of an educational logistics professional. Using a combination of theoretical and practical lessons, as well as experience on the job, we offer different courses to specialise in a certain niche department of educational logistics.

Through our courses, we train our talents to become the future of educational logistics.

Vocational training for timetabler

Omix’ apprenticeship to become what we call a ‘scheduler 2.0’ is a seven-week course given to alumni and professionals that are looking to switch careers. The core values of a good scheduler are a passion for the improvement of education, responsibility, and an analytic way of thinking. This dynamic function is one of the most important links in the chain of educational logistics.

Scheduler 2.0

Creating a healthy timetable that adds balance to education is an important task. A big puzzle that forces you to consider different concerned parties with their wishes and demands, all while dealing with scarcity and shortages in aspects such as time, capacity, and availability of classrooms and spaces for practical classes. A proper Omix scheduler collects all the information necessary to create a balanced timetable. To ensure this, schedulers have great communication skills. It is eminent that they communicate well with other parties within the planning and scheduling team. Therefore, communication and problem solving are key components of scheduling.

An incredibly dynamic working environment, there are many differences between schools. Both among schools of the same level, as the differences between high schools, colleges, and universities (of applied sciences). Being able to conduct themselves in formal and informal settings, while being able to solve daily timetable issues due to illness or other reasons for absence. Moreover, schedulers are to create special timetables, such as examination schedules and schedules for invigilators. The duties of schedulers are never the same, and never truly finished.

Vocational training information management

The importance of information management in educational institutions has risen exponentially in the past few years. Especially with the rise of flexible curricula and scheduling. The “profession of the future” requires a certain skillset. During the vocational training for information management from our partner dé Vakopleiding Functioneel Beheer, you develop these necessary skills and qualities. It’s a practical course that immediately introduces you to topics and issues you would run into in the field. Our partner offers three separate courses that cover the essentials, tactical information management, and the Vocational Training for Information Management. The latter being the overarching course which grants the modern information manager with the tools necessary to be the best in the field.
