Over the course of EGS history, we have coordinated a number of training courses for customers in order to enable them to make the most of their equipment and avoid product failure.

The training courses offered by EGS began after demand from several customers to provide specialist training for their technical staff. In response, we put together a series of training modules designed to cover a variety of procedures for cost-effective, preventive maintenance aimed at maximising up-time.

We will usually meet with the customer to discuss the equipment that they have and the general requirements of the course.

The training will then take place either at our factory in Fordham, or at the customer site as required by the customer. These courses generally take place over two days but will vary according the needs of the client and the amount of time in hand to dedicate to the project.

Each course is tailored to the needs of the customer and provides a balance of theory and practical issues. We can cover a wide variety of products including mechanical governors and electronic modules.

In order to maintain high quality standards of training, we advise customers to plan for a maximum of six employees to attend each course. All accommodation and meals can be provided.

These courses are highly recommended by us as a great measure to reduce the risk of unplanned downtime as they will maximise employee awareness on all aspects of governor set-up for minimum disturbance to their operation. They have been particularly successful over the years as you can see from a number of comments made in questionnaires that customers kindly took the time to answer for us:

“Well thought-out and well-presented course. Instructor extremely knowledgeable on subject matter. Plenty of opportunity given to hands on adjustments.”

“Good mix of practical and theory; a good insight into governor operation. Learned a lot of ‘Don’t Dos’. Nice to have an opportunity to play with the real thing. User-friendly, well planned, well presented and a great lunch… by far one of our better courses.”

“It was great to have some much information to take away from the course on memory stick.”

“Catered for all levels of understanding.”

“Have come away from the course feeling a lot more confident in tackling any problems that may occur on board.”

“a good relaxed atmosphere with plenty of useful information. good use of hands on equipment to explain the technical theory of adjustment techniques.

“Very relaxed. As this is my first course, I think it will be hard for future courses to reach this high standard”
