CNC Training Academy draws the crowds and a member of the Government

CNC Training Academy draws the crowds and a member of the Government

Added to MTDCNC by Mills CNC Ltd on 23 April 2014

The CNC Training Academy, the UK and Ireland’s premier CNC Programmer and Operator training organisation, welcomed hundreds of visitors onto its stand at MACH 2014.

Promoting its Fanuc (turning and milling) and Heidenhain (milling) basic and advanced courses, as well as a range of its specialist courses (FeatureCAM, Manual Guide, PC Fapt, Cimco Edit etc.), and using its state-of-the-art CNC simulators as a training resource, the Academy stand (in Hall 5) was a popular destination for companies and individuals keen to update and upgrade their CNC programming and machine tool setting and operating skills.

Comments CNC Training Academy Manager, Jeff Hart:

'We were inundated by requests.

'Enquiries about all our courses were coming in thick and fast throughout the five days of the Show, with interest in our (beginner) turning and milling courses being worthy of special mention.

'As well as signing up companies and individuals (there and then) onto our existing courses, we made contact with hundreds of potential customers who we are now actively following up.'

Amongst the Academy’s many visitors during the week was Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, The Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP, who took time out, on Friday 11th April, to meet the Training Academy Team, find out more about the scope and scale of its operations, and to answer questions about The Government’s training and skills development plans and programmes.

Continues Jeff Hart:

'The Secretary of State knew of us, and was impressed when we told him that we train up to 500 individuals every year.

'He stressed The Government’s commitment to high-quality vocational training and making training grants and funding more accessible, and reiterated the important role that organisations, like us, play in helping address the UK’s engineering and manufacturing skills shortage.
