Kenteq erkenning leerbedrijfLast month, Lens R&D received a formal approval from Kenteq (certifying body) to act as a certified training company.

This means it is acknowledged that students get the right level of attention and coaching while gathering practical experience in working for a real company.

It is highly uncommon for a two man company to get this certification. The auditor was impressed to find  such a tight quality control and structured operation in a company this size.
