Combined Composite Technologies, part Momentive Specialty Chemicals (Momentive CCT), has developed a specially-adapted training school at its facility in Segensworth North, near Fareham, UK, where it will not only upskill Momentive CCT’s workforce, but also enable it to collaborate with Consuta Training to provide high-quality training to the workforce across the composite industry, providing flexible, modular and bespoke courses in a range of composite production processes.
According to Momentive CCT, the new training school is equipped with a full range of moulds, autoclaves, ovens, vacuum equipment and all the ancillary tools needed to facilitate courses in the three major composite production processes: wet lay-up, pre-preg and resin infusion. Class sizes are kept to a maximum number of 10 students to ensure the delivery of the highest quality tuition from Consuta’s expert trainers.
Consuta says its courses, held at Momentive CCT, are open to all composite manufacturing companies, colleges and universities across the UK and further afield. Additionally, Consuta’s unique and flexible approach allows students to learn one topic or process at a time if required, in manageable chunks, at intervals to fit in with their work or other studies.
Paul Collier, Managing Director at Momentive CCT, commented “We see this collaborative approach between manufacturer and trainer as the way forward to ensure the composite industry has a competent, well-qualified workforce. The need for high-quality training applies to existing employees, who may need to acquire additional skills, just as much as to new employees who need to be trained from scratch.”
Chris Little, Director of Consuta Training, added “We are really excited to be delivering our specialised composite training courses within the dedicated school at Momentive CCT’s production facility. Consuta’s courses have already started with Momentive CCT’s employees and we look forward to welcoming students from across industry and academia.”
