How do I train my workforce?

Companies may train operatives by one of two methods

1. Internal training.

ICATS member companies can nominate trainers from within their own workforce to deliver the training internally. The nominated trainer must have a minimum of 5 years experience in the industrial or marine coating industry and have supervisory experience. Full details of the course are as follows:

ICATS Company Trainers Course

The course is 2 days in our Northampton training facility to prepare trainers to deliver ICATS training courses in their member companies.

The course covers

  1. An introduction to the scheme and its objectives
  2. Responsibilities of a trainer
  3. Documentation
  4. How to use the ICATS software
  5. How to set up a training session
  6. International standards
  7. A presentation by each trainer to the group

During the training various group activities and assessments take place to ensure that each trainer is comfortable that he or she is ready to conduct internal training.

Upon successful completion of the course each trainer receives a handbook and access to all of the ICATS training material they are qualified to deliver.

Course fees are £585 Plus VAT per person which includes refreshments and lunch on both days.
