Materials Testing Training Solutions Increase Efficiency

By on May 31, 2017

DAVID THOMAS, Business Development Consultant for Lab Tech Training reports on the increased efficiency of workplace based practical training.

In 2017, the construction materials testing (CMT) market calls for faster turnaround of tests with increased compliance and reporting to NATA, all on a lower cost per test base. Agile organisations are turning to workplace based practical training to upskill their lab teams at an operational level.

LabTech Training Victoria (LTTV) has worked with key industry bodies, multinationals and small local businesses to develop a smarter, more engaged workforce. In conjunction with Chisholm Institute, LTTV has delivered customised training solutions in workplaces across Victoria for over five years.
