Industrial trades

Developing essential manual skills for hands-on industrial careers

Despite technological advances and increasing factory automation, many industrial tasks still remain manual and must be performed by resourceful, competent personnel. Our hands-on training solutions support the development of important skills and abilities required for the installation, maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair of industrial equipment.

If you provide training in industrial and construction trades, you probably spend most of your time in the workshop, guiding learners through practical learning activities. We support you on many levels:

Realistic, safe learning platforms

Well-designed, mobile training hardware, scaled for student use, facilitates learning and optimizes laboratory space. Students will use real-life tools and components, and learn the techniques used in the industry, for a meaningful learning experience.

Universal, transferrable skills

Each system tackles a specific set of skills required for industrial trades workers, ensuring focused, yet comprehensive coverage. The pedagogical approach is designed to allow easy transfer of acquired abilities, techniques, and knowledge in various industry segments.

Turnkey courseware: added value

Courseware offers just the right amount of theory, focusing on practice-oriented, carefully planned exercises, including coverage of troubleshooting and safety. The illustrated, step-by-step exercises promote autonomy and self-learning.
