In-Comm invests in apprentice and vocational skills

In-Comm Training and Business Services is reinforcing its commitment to delivering apprentice and vocational skills in the West Midlands by making a major investment in its Aldridge-based academy. 

In-Comm Training and Business Services has spent over £235,000 on installing a new hydraulics and pneumatics section and a live components board that provides real-life scenarios for prospective maintenance and sector specific engineers.

It has installed a six bay welding section with TIG/MIG/ARC ‘Miller’ welding equipment, and acquired ‘ONE CNC’ and ‘Heidenhain’ CAD/CAM training simulation packages.

The firm has also built a dedicated 150m2 Forklift Truck Centre adjacent to its Aldridge academy. This will provide RTITB accredited training for more than 250 people every year in counterbalance, narrow aisle, reach and mobile elevated work platforms.
