Training to get the best from glass 

Glass is a unique material with amazing properties – and understanding these better can help people in a huge range of roles. That’s why British Glass is holding a Glass Appreciation course – delivered by Glass Technology Service Ltd – on 17 May 2017.

The course is an ideal introduction for anyone working in glass or otherwise dealing with glass products or issues. It introduces delegates to glass processes, products and the benefits of using glass – together with practical sessions for both making and inspecting glass.

Delivered by specialists in their respective fields it covers topics from manufacture, processing and basic chemistry to properties, defects and failure is in a simple and accessible way.  

Delegate numbers are strictly limited to encourage an informal atmosphere, interaction, productive practical sessions and opportunities for delegates to focus on examples specific to their work area.

British Glass Training and Development Coordinator Meg Grattidge said: 

“Whether you design, make, sell or reuse glass – this course  will support your business objectives by giving you an understanding of how glass is made and behaves. It’s ideal for people in roles across the glass supply chain – including new starters to the industry, packers and fillers of food and drink products, those who buy packaging for brands and retailers or even glass reprocessors.”
