Maintaining and upgrading the skills of operators and technicians is imperative to success and can be achieved through cross-skilling. Teaching operators basic electrical skills such as MCP's Mechanical to Electrical training course provides them with the knowledge they need to perform maintenance and fault-finding on the production line. With 24 hour manufacturing, operators skilled in basic electrical skills will have the level of competency required to get a line up and running quickly should a fault occur. It also reduces the need for qualified electricians to be called out.
MCP has trained over 1000 people in the City and Guilds accredited Mechanical to Electrical training course. The programme is designed for technicians who have no previous electrical background, to enable them to work on specific electrical tasks competently and safely.
Organisations who have participated in MCP's course include Muller Dairy, United Biscuits, Johnson Controls, Stansted Airport, Scottish & Newcastle, Haydens Bakeries, Mars Snack Foods, Robert Wiseman Dairies, Apetito, Tilda and Sara Lee.
