  • Boost workers productivity

Studies show that workers with professional certifications are more productive. Those with  certifications are better prepared and educated with the latest and most acceptable industry inspection practices. Workers certified in refractory, for example, are more knowledgeable of installation, inspection, testing and repair of refractory lining and qualified in doing so. Certified workers often work more efficiently than uncertified colleagues, and their presence can help improve the productivity of day-to-day operations.


  • Encourage greater peace of mind

When workers are certified, they learn from the training the importance of adhering to certain professional and industry standards. This not only empowers them, but the higher management is able to confidently trust in the team’s capability to meet industry benchmarks. This allows a higher quality of work produced, leading to a high level of performance while maintaining safety in the workplace. This increases management’s confidence in their team and allows a greater peace of mind.


  • Internationally recognised

The company is then seen as a highly qualified company with highly skilled workers, who value add through contributions that adds to the safety and quality of plant operations.
