Our abrasive wheel train the trainer course takes place over a full day. In particular it is aimed at individuals who wish to train their own staff in the safe use of abrasive wheels.
We are changing the way that we deliver our abrasive wheel train the trainer 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 a live 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 2 people at a time and taking approximately 90 minutes to complete each group.
The practical training will include: wheel changes, dressing of the wheels where required and an operator competency assessment.
Training and Testing Services offer Abrasive Wheel Train the Trainer Courses. These specialist, full day courses have been developed to provide training to in-house instructors/trainers; in order for you to provide accurate, up-to-date and fully compliant abrasive wheel training to your own staff.
Included in the course is an instructor pack which contains everything that you need (PowerPoint presentations, handouts, certificate template, training records & more) to run your own abrasive wheel courses.
Training can be conducted on your site/premises anywhere in the UK for 1 – 4 trainees.
For the open course you will be required to attend our training centre for half a day to complete the practical element of the training.
