Wolfson Centre

Short courses for Industry

The leading place for training in the handling of powders, bulk solids and particulate materials

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 offer a practical workshop in the on-site laboratories to complement the theoretical presentations and real-life case studies used.

Courses are to be offered as a mixture of online learning and face to face training. Some courses will be offered in both modes to allow delegates the choice.

If the course you are interested in is not shown below, please ask about the possibility of holding an In-Company course.
