These figures for 2017 have shown a sizeable increase on training numbers from last year with 1,248 students successfully trained in 2017. This successful growth in students have also seen a 25% increase in courses, with TEC this year hosting 120.
The internationally approved courses are a mix of both public and in-house training – primarily in the UK however US businesses also request the services of TEC, including global engineering giants, Meggitt.
TEC Transnational courses aim to provide engineers with the skill-set to perform capable and value-adding audits as well as developing their knowledge and understanding of modern quality management systems such as ISO 9001:2015 and AS 9100:2016, both of which are IRCA certified. TEC’s capabilities also include IRIS certifications, SC21 recognition awards and quality/manufacturing techniques and tools.
As well as providing technical and accredited training, TEC is also able to develop engineer’s understanding within day to day responsibilities such as customer satisfaction, empowerment, managerial actions and thinking, project management and team leader development.
Managing director, Dr David Scrimshire, said: “The whole TEC team are pleased to see excellent growth and development within the business. The growth this year speaks volumes on the quality of teaching the engineers receive. Businesses across the globe recognise TEC as an accredited training provider. Our experienced tutors and practical courses have earned us the reputation TEC have today, as one of the UK’s leading training and coaching consultancies.”
One of the clients, Tony Stacey from Eaton, said: “None of our plants are due for assessment to the new standard until early next year, but we wanted to get our training in early with TEC to make sure all our ducks were in a row and staff were up-to-speed on the quality management systems required by the new revisions. I am confident that when we are externally assessed against these standards we’ll pass the audit with flying colours thanks to TEC’s training.
“Aerospace standards can be a dry old topic, but in his training sessions, David brings the subject to life and puts the information across in a really practical and accessible way using real life examples. Whenever I run a course, I get David to do it. For me, he’s the go-to man of aerospace standards. No one comes close to him when it comes to approach, knowledge and experience.”
