Training courses for Technicians


The Technician committee of BAPO in association with Algeos are looking to put together some training courses for Technicians.  These courses will take place at Algeos training facility in Liverpool and may be one day courses or two day courses depending on the subject.  We have access to local hotels to put attendees up.  We hope that the courses will also have practical elements to them.

We hope that the courses will be able to attract funding from the OETT this means that the attendees will be able to claim back from OETT the cost of the course, travel to the course and up to £60 per night’s accommodation.

Now the hard bit what subject would you like to see us cover.  I have started a thread over on the forum page and I would like to ask you to take time to visit the forum and post your views.
