Schneider Electric launches new industry training programme

Schneider Electric has launched a new Industrial Control and Automation Training Programme to offer distributors the knowledge and skills they need to increase sales and improve customer service. The courses, which are targeted at Schneider Electric distributors, are easily adapted and modified to meet the exact needs of the attendees and the business they work for.

The courses from Schneider Electric benefit from the company's vast experience gained within industrial control and automation to ensure a wide product and industry knowledge. Using this industry know-how, the company's product managers and product application engineers have compiled courses that cover all of the key topics needed to sell control and automation products and solutions. Being up-to-date with such information can enable distributors to increase add-on sales and provide a complete solutions service to customers.

Prior to attending a course Schneider Electric will evaluate the prospective candidate's existing knowledge, skills and role in their organisation. This process ensures the learning is structured and attendees gain maximum benefit from the courses they attend. Where possible the trainers will also take the courses to the distribution company, on a suitable day, so that on site training can be gained and disruption to the running of the business is minimal.

Some of the courses can also be used to create a 'pick and mix' training plan, which is tailored to meet the needs of the company as a whole - making sure the most is taken from each session and the distribution team has a varied range of skills.

The new courses on offer will help ensure that distributor partners can benefit from training across the whole range of Schneider Electric's control and automation products and solutions, whether the business needs more technical or product knowledge, a course can be offered to meet these demands. 

The range of training courses now scopes from basics such as Industry Awareness and Essential Solution courses to the more advanced CCS (Collaborative Control System) courses. CCS is a range of automation and control products that seamlessly link together to offer plant managers increased visibility, monitoring and control over their production line to reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs, something that is rapidly increasing in popularity. 

The Industry Awareness courses look at the fundamentals of automation and industrial controls and introduce ways to sell commodity products. To build on this knowledge, the Essential Solutions courses teach the product knowledge required to help increase cross sales and includes topics such as motor, power, control, and protection; ATEX compliance; SCADA; HMIs; automation; enclosures and drives. The most advanced CCS courses focus on offering complete solution systems including, machine safety; motor control; automation; detection; drives and energy efficiency.

Andy Turtle, product training manager, comments: "The new and improved training programme courses will benefit distributor staff by enabling them to respond to enquiries and situations encountered in the industrial market place. Not only will this result in more confident and motivated staff, but well trained team members have greater self sufficiency and are more efficient, something that is essential when looking to increase sales and improve productivity."
