Our distance learning courses are designed to meet the needs of professionals. So you can complete the distance learning course alongside your job and maintain your financial leeway. The state supports your further education through individual tax relief. Depending on your personal income and your professional situation, you may be able to deduct the costs of your distance learning as tax-deductible income-related expenses or special expenses and thus be partially reimbursed for them.
