Glass forming practical session during glass appreciation trainingLeading experts in glass, Glass Technology Services Ltd, are delivering a one-day ‘Glass appreciation – an introduction to glass’ training course in Sheffield, United Kingdom, on 16 October 2018 following increasing demand for this introductory course.

The format of the course makes it an ideal introduction for anyone new to working in glass or dealing with glass products or issues. The one-day course introduces delegates to glass manufacture, processing, defects, glass properties, environmental considerations and recycling. The course also includes two hands-on practical sessions on glass melting and forming as well as the inspection of glass products.

Delivered in an informative and interactive style by leading specialists in their respective fields, the course introduces a wide range of key topics from fundamental glass chemistry, forming techniques and common defects to performance, quality control and product failure – all covered in an accessible format.

Places are strictly limited to encourage an informal atmosphere, increased levels of interaction and participation and to enable the hands-on practical sessions. The format allows the opportunity to cover issues specific to delegates’ own working scenarios, product ranges and experiences and to enable full question and answer sessions for the benefit of all attendees.

The course is being delivered for British Glass, who are hosting the training as an open course for the glass industry and its supply chain. For further information, or to book onto the course, please visit the British Glass events and training website.

Glass Technology Services Ltd deliver a range of courses, including glass appreciation, fracture analysis, fundamentals in glass and courses tailored to key sectors such as #PharmaGlass, and glass for retail and brand owners. All courses are available as hosted options for individual delegates as well as in-house options for larger associations and companies.
