Ceramic Whitewares Training

As an internationally recognized expert in ceramics, our whitewares courses are aimed at tableware, tile and sanitaryware manufacturers, as well as retailers and suppliers.

With a series of modules either at our headquarters in Staffordshire, and customized on-site training or interactive online training to meet specific business requirements, our experts will share their knowledge, skills and experience with your teams whatever their business function, from technical and manufacturing through to processing, marketing and sales.

Can't see what you need? We have other modules available to cover most standard manufacturing processes including plaster moulds, testing of ceramic materials and forming.

Designed to be interactive, our tutors will draw upon their decades of experience to provide attendees with both the theoretical and practical aspects of manufacturing processes that can be applied to the everyday challenges faced by industry.

All of our ceramic whitewares training modules or customized ceramics training can be delivered online, through live, interactive sessions. Talk to us about your training needs by contacting Caroline Mullington

Can't fit everything into one session? Not a problem. We can work with you to set up a training series to create a multi-session learning experience.

Places are limited to 12 people per module.
