The Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) launched their brand-new training platform at this year’s MACH exhibition, hosted at Birmingham’s NEC between the 15th and 19th of April. This innovative new resource provides MTA and non-MTA members with a wide selection of training courses designed to enhance their technical and soft skills. Delivered via online, classroom-based, and face-to-face sessions, their courses cover a range of important topics, such as crisis management, health and safety, and manual handling.   

The MTA strongly encourages members and non-members to sign up for this industry-leading training platform. Their courses are tailored to deliver key information in an interactive, accessible way. From professionals looking to refine their technical skills to those who wish to improve their compliance knowledge, MTA’s platform caters to an array of different needs.  

Daniel Reed, MTA’s Education and Skills manager, commented: “We hope that our exciting new training platform will support members and non-members in improving their workplace skills. We understand that people have different learning styles, and that’s why we made sure that our courses could be delivered in several formats.” 

He added: “Ultimately, our primary objective is to ensure that the manufacturing technologies sector’s workforce is well-equipped to perform their duties effectively. With technological advancements and regulatory changes constantly reshaping our industry, professionals must have a resource where they can enhance their knowledge and skills.”  

While the training platform is accessible to everyone, the courses are immediately available to members. Committed to fostering a collaborative environment, the MTA also allows its members to offer their own training courses on the platform.  

Available courses include:  

  • Travel Risk Management and Safety 
  • Manual Handling (Principles and Practices (Level 2))
  • Fire Safety (Level 2) 
  • Health and Safety in the Workplace (Level 2) 
  • First Aid Risk Assessment (Principles and Practices (Level 2))

  • Use of an Automated External Defibrillator 
  • Emergency First Aid at Work (Level 3) 
  • Modern Inspirational Leadership

The MTA believes that these courses will help the manufacturing sector overcome the ongoing skills gap. Facilitating access to learning opportunities will not only help professionals develop their careers, but it will also ensure that there is a greater pool of highly skilled candidates for manufacturing firms to recruit from.
