Accredited courses in industrial hose fittings

Local distribution business, Industrial Ancillaries – in partnership with the British Fluid Power Association (BFPA) - has started delivering courses designed for people working with hydraulic and pneumatic hoses.

They cover all industries including construction, oil and gas, plumbing, process and analytic instrumentation, energy, aerospace and medical.

As a BFPA-approved training centre, the Industrial Ancillaries Academy is an important addition to the core business in helping to raise standards and awareness, especially in the area of safety within the industry.

Jamie Dennis, Managing Director of Industrial Ancillaries, said: "These training programmes have been established to raise the awareness levels of people who work with hydraulic and pneumatic hoses at all levels: from the system designer and field engineer, to the machine operator and the person who actually makes hose assemblies.

"Being a supplier of these products, we have a responsibility to promote health and safety when the products are in use. Anyone looking to improve their working knowledge is welcome to participate in the courses.”

Courses range from Foundation level, through to more intermediate classes in hose inspection and management, and are aimed at anyone wishing to improve their current knowledge or job prospects within the industry.
