British Abrasives Federation (BAF) Accredited Abrasive Wheel Training.
We are changing the way that we deliver our abrasive wheel training courses:
Due to the coronavirus we have had to make significant changes in how we conduct abrasive wheel training on site at our customers premises.
Further to conducting training and RPE testing for the NHS during the coronavirus pandemic and following guidance from the Health and Safety Executive, the following measures will help us to minimise the risk of contamination whilst still delivering the highest quality service.
We will no longer be delivering the theory part of the training course on-site so we can minimise social contact.
The theory part of the training course will now be delivered via an online webinar, all trainees will be required to watch this and complete a theory test prior to the practical training taking place.
The practical training is an integral part of an abrasive wheel course this part of the course cannot be successfully completed virtually.
“There is no substitute for thorough practical training in all aspects of the mounting and use of abrasive wheels.” Source HSG17 “Safety in the Use of Abrasive Wheels”.
The practical element of the training will be conducted on your site but in small groups of a maximum of 3 people at a time and taking approximately 45 minutes to complete each group.
The practical training will include: wheel changes, dressing of the wheels where required and an operator competency assessment.
The abrasive wheel training course that you require needs to be relevant to your operators and the types of machines that they use.
This is why we have developed 12 different abrasive wheels courses (so far) to meet the needs of you and your operators.
All of our courses are accredited by the British Abrasives Federation (BAF) and have been designed by us with guidance from industry experts.
Our abrasive wheel training courses are delivered by expert instructors who have decades of teaching experience between them and they are also experienced abrasive wheel machine operators.

Tell us at the time of booking and we can ensure the training you receive is relevant to the machines that you use.
Our abrasive wheel courses are a combination of webinar based and practical learning and will create awareness of the hazards associated with working with abrasive wheels. If access to your machinery is not possible you will be required to attend our training centre in North Yorkshire for your practical assessments.
Please Note: in this instance we are unable to conduct precision grinding and practical assessments.
We will also provide you with advice and recommendations on making sure that your use of abrasive wheels is as safe as it can be.
