Abrasive Wheels Courses

Price: from £145 per person (+VAT)

 

The affordable Abrasive Wheels training courses in Devon at Hush Farms cover all the wheels you regularly use - from portable electric hand-helds, to bench mounted or petrol driven machines. 

We don't just provide the abrasive wheels training, but the assessment too – accredited by LANTRA or NPTC – and it's all designed to fit your individual needs. Plus, the courses are recognised by HSE, so you can ensure you're complying with the right legislation.


The legal bit: Anyone using abrasive wheels in the workplace must have proof of adequate training from a qualified person. They must also have periodic updates for this training. None of this is optional, either, it's the law and it applies to volunteers, employed and self-employed people.

Our abrasive wheels courses are designed to be delivered at your place of work with your own machine(s), so your equipment and facilities will need to be available for the entire course. If it's easier, though, we can arrange a different venue, or you can come to one of our East Devon sites.
