Global services and training company, Hydratight, is celebrating 25 years as an Engineering Construction Industry Training Board (ECITB) approved training provider in the area of mechanical joint integrity and on-site machining.
Hydratight has worked with the ECITB to deliver specialist bolting training programs since 1994 — including the introduction of the Mechanical Joint Integrity (MJI) program. The company also offers an ECITB On-Site Machining training program.
Hydratight’s ECITB approved programs provide a method of training and validation of skills after a period of workplace experience covering learning outcomes relevant to safety and Joint Integrity Assurance when carrying out torque tightening, bolt tensioning, weld preparation, joint face machining, and more.
“We congratulate Hydratight on their 25th Anniversary as an ECITB training provider,” says Blair Barclay, Provider Technical Manager. “The Hydratight team has been pivotal to the success and high standard of the Mechanical Joint Integrity and On-Site Machining training programs. It is only fitting that this unrivalled track record and alignment with the ECITB strategy for leading industry learning has resulted in Hydratight’s selection as a finalist in the ‘Approved Training Provider’ category at the ECI Training & Development Awards.”
With a track-record of more than 14,000 learners during this period and as a leading provider in this specialist area, the company is marking this training milestone with the implementation of a new eLearning initiative to include ECITB computer-based refresher training options, bringing experienced workers up-to-date with current industry best practice.
“With the announcement of our eLearning initiative, we are putting in place a Learning Development Management System (LDMS) framework that will include a suite of eLearning courses specific to ECITB MJI refresher training, with additional OSM refresher training courses planned for future development,” says Jason Barnard, Global Technical Competency Manager, Hydratight.
