In-house training

Designed to suit your needs

FACTS has been in business for over 18 years. In this time, we’ve learnt that each of our clients has different training needs. Keeping this front of mind, our main priority is to understand your company’s challenges and your long- and short-term objectives.

We use this information to build your training programme which will be designed to address your needs – and ultimately, to help you meet your training requirements.

We set ourselves apart by including practical examples that resonate with the products and/or systems used in your facility. This will enable your team to workshop and refine solutions to address your challenges. Our customised training can be hosted virtually or in person, and can be structured according to your availability.

We encourage you to view our training calendar, which encompasses the workshops, masterclasses and webinars we offer. Our team of experts recommend this as a good starting point to the development of your customised training journey with FACTS.
