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 customised 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) Remotely – by live webinar. Find out more here.

2) At our UK headquarters in Stoke-on-Trent.

3) At your site.

Please note that in order to keep our employees and yours safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, all training is currently being carried out remotely by webinar.

Please contact Caroline Mullington, Training Manager, caroline.mullington@lucideon.com to discuss your needs.
