A well-trained workforce boosts profits

Profitability is generally good when productivity levels are high in most industries, and one of the long-recognised ways to ensure that productivity remains elevated is by upskilling the workforce through useful training courses.

As mechanised operations become increasingly complex, and the smooth running of components is increasingly critical to the general production and output in industry, so the need for ongoing employee education becomes more important.

We have run popular skills training courses for our customers for over 20 years. The training material assists staff in various positions within the maintenance teams to ensure that the monitoring and upkeep of components is conducted as efficiently as possible.

WearCheck employs reliability solutions services such as used oil analysis, thermal imaging, vibration monitoring, balancing, laser alignment and others, to monitor and maintain machinery at its optimum yield. Customers with well-trained maintenance staff can supply better samples and data to WearCheck, boosting the integrity of the test results and thus gaining optimum benefit from their condition monitoring programme.

WearCheck’s training courses cover accurate oil analysis report interpretation, correct sample taking, pre-planned maintenance schedules and good lubricant management.

Training courses are conducted around South Africa as well as in other regions where there are WearCheck customers.  Courses are tailored and targeted at a range of levels within an operation, from factory floor to senior management.

Over the 40 years in business, WearCheck has compiled a database of sample diagnoses and wear trends, adding 600 000 new sample results annually to the data. Much of the training course material draws on this database, with the added benefit that WearCheck processes samples from a range of OEMs.

Oil Analysis One (two full days) costs R5 950.00.  Oil Analysis Two (one full day) and costs R3 000.00.  All courses include course material, refreshments, giveaways and certificates. Prices exclude VAT and are subject to change.  Both of these courses can be presented at the customer’s venue, and courses can also be customised to specific customer requirements.

WearCheck also offers two more on-site courses:

•           WearCheck Practical (in English or Zulu), (half day) costing R735.00 plus VAT per delegate

•           WearCheck Customised – oil analysis for workshop technicians, (full day) costing R1 730.00 plus VAT per delegate.

All courses can be presented at the customer’s premises for a minimum of seven delegates.  There may be an additional charge for the lecturer’s travel and accommodation, if needed.

Oil analysis training courses can also be arranged anywhere in the world. We conduct regular courses in Bloemfontein, Cape Town, Kimberley, Makopane, Nelspruit, Port Elizabeth, Rustenburg, Steelpoort, Botswana, Namibia, Tanzania (Mwanza), Zambia (Kitwe).
