No experience is necessary in order to join this course. Abrasive wheel training is designed to meet the requirements of PUWER 98 and the Health and Safety Executive publication HSG 17 “Safety in the Use of Abrasive Wheels”

Training is conducted either on customers premises or at any of over 50 centres nationwide and is purely a classroom based course, not specific to any particular grinding or cutting machine.
