Empower your maintenance workforce with WearCheck training courses

The condition monitoring sector is one which is constantly evolving and developing to incorporate innovation and boost efficiency. It is for this reason that ongoing training is essential to keep the maintenance crew at the forefront of technological advancements within the industry.

WearCheck training consultant Jan Backer (second from left) recently conducted oil analysis training courses in Klipspruit for delegates from Moolmans.

WearCheck’s technical manager, Steven Lumley, who oversees the company’s training programme, believes that companies where staff are not well trained in the latest maintenance techniques will be hampered by diminishing effectiveness of their condition monitoring programme.

Says Lumley, ‘We urge companies operating in all industries to invest in training their staff to optimise their return on investment in condition monitoring.

‘All WearCheck’s courses comply with lockdown regulations to ensure the safety of delegates and staff. Please contact us to confirm whether the courses will be held at a venue or online, as we strive to comply with pandemic regulations.’

The oil analysis and condition monitoring training courses are targeted at maintenance practitioners operating at various levels within an organisation. Many of these courses earn valuable CPD (continuing professional development) points for delegates.
