SKF is announcing its latest training courses for 2010. The programme is designed to help design, production and maintenance engineers improve their skills, learn about new technologies, and discover techniques for increasing machine and plant efficiency, reliability and performance. The courses will be delivered by experienced SKF trainers.

Among the courses on offer are sessions covering different aspects of machine reliability, from the shop floor to the executive office. Work Identification courses include methods and technologies for identifying the condition and maintenance requirements of machinery, while Work Execution includes correct bearing application and failure assessment, as well as best practices in lubrication, installation, precision alignment, balancing and post-maintenance testing.

In addition to the training courses offered by SKF's Reliability Maintenance Institute (RMI) at its offices in Luton and Aberdeen, a customised programme can be arranged at clients' sites. Alternatively, e-learning courses covering a range of topics enable flexible, self-paced learning to be undertaken.
