When maintenance is challenged on-site, training of its staff is one of the best investment a company can do to improve efficiency and limit costly errors.
Through LubInstitute, TOTAL Lubricants propose a comprehensive range of trainings that can be tailored to your needs. Depending on the depth of knowledge targeted, we can organise from a short one hour training on basics to 3 full days on all types of applications (hydraulic, gears, rotating equipment…etc). Last year our technical experts have delivered more than 20 sessions to various clients in the UK directly on-site or via e-learning.
Your challenges - our solutions
We all need to ensure our equipment works at 100% efficiency to boost productivity while controlling costs. By learning how to choose the appropriate lubricant or how to monitor the health of your equipment, LubInstitute will help you avoid costly failures. It will best train your new employees about maintenance best practices.
The training is highly interactive and activity oriented to maximise results.
