CNC Training Academy experiences steady growth in 2012
The CNC Training Academy, the UK’s premier CNC programmer training specialist, has reported that the strong demand for its range of high-quality, professionally-delivered and cost-competitive training courses hit an all-time high in 2012.
During the 12 month period from January 2012 to December 2012, over 425 people from some 170 different companies were trained by the Academy (either at the Academy’s modern, state-of-the-art facility in Leamington or off-site at customers’ premises).
The figures represent a 25% increase in the total number of customers trained during the same period in 2011 and a 30% increase in the number of companies using the Academy for their CNC training requirements.
Comments Jeff Hart, CNC Training Academy Manager:
‘There has been an increase in demand for all of our courses over the last 12 months (from basic right through to our advanced and specialist courses), and our new, short introductory Milling and Turning Programmer and Operator training courses have proved very popular.
‘Reading between the lines it would appear that many UK and Irish manufacturers have invested in training to improve the skills of their people and to help them cope with and capitalise on the continuing economic upturn in 2012.
Their need for professionally-delivered,high-added value training resulted in many selecting the Academy as their training provider.’
2012 was a busy year for the CNC Training Academy.
As well as exhibiting at MACH 2012 where it promoted its new advanced and specialist CNC Programmer courses (e.g. FeatureCAM, Fanuc Manual Guide i; PC Fapt; Cimco Edit 5 and DNC-Max etc.), as well as its existing ranges of Fanuc, Heidenhain and Siemens Programmer courses, 2012 also saw the Academy:
- Launch its new website;
- Recruit additional, full-time training staff;
- Expand and improve its training facilities with the opening of its second Training Room.
Concludes Jeff Hart:
‘2012 was a great year for us and demonstrated that the Academy is a major (if not the major) provider of high-quality CNC training courses in the UK.
‘We aim to further strengthen our position in the market and build on our reputation in 2013.’
