This and the active participation in the course are the prerequisites for the issue of a certificate at the end of the course. In order to protect your personal rights you can also register with your initials or a freely chosen abbreviation instead of "first name last name". Please inform the course organizer in advance so that your name can be assigned for the issue of the course certificate.
