Thanks to its customizable applications, AMIKEO has become a key tool for many workers in technical workshops, green spaces, catering and cleaning. Procedures are visual and audible, planning is simplified, and exercises are used for training… Workers are active participants, creating their own materials with their instructors and peers. At work, AMIKEO stimulates autonomy, pairaidance, skills development and self-evaluation.
