ABB wins national award for diverse training course portfolio
Award recognises contribution training has made to tackling crucial issues such as energy reduction and leakage prevention.
ABB has won “Contribution to Skills and Training” at the annual Motion Control Industry (MCI) awards, held in Birmingham in May. The prize recognises ABB’s commitment to helping industries to tackle their biggest challenges – from cutting energy consumption and CO2 emissions to reducing the millions of litres of clean drinking water lost through leakage.
ABB offers more than 30 courses, several of which are CPD (continuous professional development) accredited. Targeting end users, contractors, consultants, machine builders and OEMs, the courses aim to improve engineering expertise, tackle technical challenges and improve operational knowledge of applying variable speed drives and motors.
ABB’s courses have upskilled thousands of engineers, managers and apprentices from a diverse range of industries. Trainees can choose between eLearning, sessions at a site of their choice, or courses at ABB’s bespoke training school in Coalville, Leicestershire. Courses are also delivered by the ABB authorised value provider network – a group of independent companies authorised by ABB and located throughout the UK and Ireland.
