Ceramic Whitewares Training

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

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.

With a series of modules either at our headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent, and customized on-site training or webinars 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.
