FAQs

  1. Q: Do you provide training to be a trainer for abrasive wheels courses?

    A:

    Not currently; we recommend you visit the British Abrasive Federation which is where our trainers trained to train. They also have an abrasive wheels FAQ page - here.

  2. Q: Where can I find HSE's - Safety in the use of abrasive wheels publication

    A: pdfs are available on the HSE website (2.5MB)

  3. Q: Frequency of abrasive wheels training - the certificate says 5 yrs but BAF suggest 3 yrs - why is there a difference?

    A: 5 years is in line with other major accreditation bodies such as PASMA, CITB, etc. but if you haven't used abrasive wheels since you received training then 3 years is probably more sensible.

  4. Q: Is this course BAF accredited?

    A: No, but the trainers are. The reason is economic - a BAF accredited course would be more expensive for us to provide and essentially would not differ to the courses we run.
