About the course

Developed in conjunction with the Construction Training Academy, James Fisher Prolec is now able to offer a customer-centric suite of NPORS accredited, advanced training courses, covering its industry leading PME product range.

Utilising excavators fitted with the entire PME range of products, Prolec and CTA can deliver training on the full specification system and its necessary safety features or, just as easily, more bespoke options to specifically cover the system a customer has in place. Training can be delivered at the CTA site in Doncaster or can be delivered at the customer's own facilities.

To maximise the effectiveness of the course, and ensure operators are fully-equipped to use Prolec’s safety systems, groups are limited to a maximum of four operators at a time, allowing for practical, hands-on experience, ensuring that operators arrive on-site with total confidence and working knowledge of the system.
