Quotes from CAPS Feedback

"I will now be able to prepare my trials with more awareness of the whole papermaking process and the way that the operators think about things".

"You have given me awareness of the mechanical side of papermaking and the awareness to speak to customers about how our treatments can help them with energy optimisation, e.g. CCLA".

"I now know more about the papermaking machine and have become more comfortable speaking about the other areas, as well as my own speciality".

About Us

This website is intended to be a portal to trainers and training organisations, and not a resource in its own right. The idea of the paper training group was born out of the Proskills meeting in Birmingham in March 2011.A theme that ran through the comments from the audience was - we don't know what is available or where to get it! .
