Level Up Your Team With Our Bespoke Technical Training Programmes
Designed for engineers by engineers – our training programmes are tailored to suit customers’ needs. Through our years of experience, we continue to lead the field in engineering innovation and building a future pipeline of skills is a high priority for our business.
As business leaders, AVK UK’s commitment to service goes above and beyond the day-to-day activity; we have a responsibility to ensure customers receive the best from our products and as such we offer free training and insights into the manufacturing processes.
Our training sessions are tailored to your requirements and held at any of the AVK offices across the UK, or, at your convenience, at your site. Any number of delegates can be catered for and training is suited to the various levels of experience and product knowledge – from new employees through to refresher courses for advanced engineers.
Courses range from a one hour Lunch and Learn session (yes…we bring the lunch) through to half day, a full day, to a 2-day course visiting the AVK manufacturing facilities across the UK.
Training covers: -
1. Applications - understanding which products can be used and where and where NOT to use. Many AVK UK products overlap in terms of duty and so it’s the engineer’s job to decide which product is best suited to an application, be it pressure, operation, working envelope or duty.
2. The Manufacturing Process - many engineers unfortunately only get to see the product either on site or on a data sheet, therefore a factory tour is a key benefit in terms of providing an inside view of a valve or fitting and how these are manufactured from the raw material. Also, gaining an understanding of AVK’s LEAN engineering processes and complex supply chain gives additional insight into the manufacturing process.
3. Innovation - AVK UK continues to innovate and introduce new products to existing ranges and it is important for upcoming engineers to understand how innovation thrives in a collaborative environment.
AVK UK prides itself on sharing this breadth of knowledge and know-how, not only with our own apprentices, but also with our customers’ apprentices and graduates and in doing so, we continue to contribute and support the next generation of engineers.
In recent weeks, Dean Wheatley, Business Development Manager – Fittings, carried out training sessions alongside colleague John Brelsford, Key Accounts Manager (UK North) with Severn Trent’s Main Lay Teams. Dean explains:
“AVK carry out face to face training with all teams whether they be site based or designers. You can't beat that face-to-face interaction, this type of training encourages meaningful learning experiences, and delivers specifically what a customer wants.”
