…as they successfully complete ICA Bremen training
The two-day ‘Learning about Machinery’ training course was delivered in Denkendorf, Germany from 16 – 17 May by experts from DITF. The training covered a range of textile areas including; spinning, weaving, knitting and finishing, with detailed explanations of DITF’s processes provided at the machinery.
One delegate described it as an “excellent overview about the different textile machinery”.
Shortly after, ICA Bremen delivered its six-day ‘Classing & Testing’ programme in Bremen, Germany from 5 – 12 June. The training concentrated purely on quality issues in raw cotton and was delivered by experts from ICA Bremen and the Bremen Fibre Institute (FIBRE).
Following the training, ICA Bremen course deliverer, Karsten Froese, said: “Our Classing & Testing’ programme gave delegates practical training in many areas of quality measurement and the influence of cotton quality on processing. Where possible, we tailored the training to meet the needs of our participants’ firms as we understand the benefit this brings to them and their companies.
“Feedback for both training courses was very positive and we plan to run them both again next year.”
The next ‘Cotton Classing & Testing’ and ‘Learning about Machinery’ training programmes will take place in 2019 – the exact dates are yet to be confirmed.
We also plan on running a new, two-day ‘Understanding Cotton’ training course in 2019 aimed specifically at retailers. The date and location will be announced soon.
