Training Courses

Would you like to enhance your ceramics whitewares or refractories skills and knowledge?

Lucideon's training courses have been developed by our in-house experts, all of whom have years of industry and practical experience.

We have over 20 standard modules to choose from, covering a wide range of ceramics and refractories subjects.

And, if you need training customized to your business and people, we can build a training course to meet your objectives.

If you didn't know, Lucideon started out as the British Ceramic Research Association over 70 years ago – so we know a thing or two about ceramics!

Don't just take our word for it though. Bernhard Kerschbaum, the Chief Executive Officer of Rosler Metal Finishing USA, LLC says: "I highly recommend utilizing Lucideon's standard or customized training programs. The Lucideon team has done an outstanding job in delivering exactly what we needed." Read his full quote here.

We deliver the course in three ways:

1) Online – using Teams. Find out more here (ceramic whitewares only).

2) At our UK headquarters in Staffordshire.

3) At your site.

Places are limited to 12 people per module.

Please contact Caroline Mullington, Training Manager, to discuss your needs.
