Tailored cable training programmes
Our tailored cable training programmes are prepared and delivered according to the audience's desired learning outcomes and takes into account the participants' existing cable knowledge and position. Usually, organisations send between 5 to 10 delegates to our training facilities for 1 to 3 days to acquire general knowledge about cable, however we can also run smaller classes for an individual or small group requiring expert knowledge on a specific topic.
Eland Cables' training programme provided an essential understanding of the processes and best practices covering cable manufacturing, supply logistics and specific live applications. The information was presented in a clear and engaging way by their cable experts, with demonstrations and opportunities for hands-on experience to really reinforce what we were learning. Everyone came away from this valuable training session confident and eager to apply this newly acquired knowledge."
