Our courses cover different aspects of bulk materials handling.

The Wolfson Centre offers a wide range of short courses designed specifically for engineers involved in the handling and /or designing of equipment for bulk solid materials.

Course content is continually developed to reflect the changes occurring in industry and the needs of the engineer.

Many now include practical sessions as a separate day in the on-site laboratories.

If the course you are interested in is not shown below, please ask about the possibility of holding an In-Company course. It may also be possible to schedule a course to be held on our premises if enough interest is shown. Please contact us for details.
