Woodworking is a craft that demands precision, skill, and a deep understanding of the machinery involved. At Advanced Machinery Services (AMS), along with the Wadkin Bursgreen Training Academy, a comprehensive selection of certified courses is on offer, tailored to suit all brands and models of woodworking machinery, chainsaws, straight knives, and profile grinders.

“We are dedicated to providing comprehensive woodworking machinery training, regardless of the operator’s experience, machine make and model,” explains Simon – a dedicated trainer within the Wadkin Bursgreen Academy.

“Our daily efforts are focused on providing the best safety training on woodworking machinery in the UK. We train on panel saws, spindle moulders, crosscuts, bandsaws, rip saws, planers, thicknessers, grinders and planer moulders. Our expertise encompasses a wide range of brands like Wadkin, Weinig, Leadermac, SCM, Gau Jing, Wadkin Bursgreen and much more.”

Access to the AMS training is available across the UK

Normally, the trainer travels to the client’s workshop and delivers the training in their facility on their machines to make sure that the trainees understand them perfectly. Alternatively, the client can travel to AMS in Skeffington for training at the Wadkin Bursgreen Academy – a choice that AMS offers to all its customers.

At AMS, every training program is customised to match each client’s unique requirements. They begin by understanding the specific business and machinery in use, along with the operators’ experience. This enables AMS to design a training program that precisely fits each company’s needs.

Safety, quality, and reputation are paramount in any business

“Beyond being a legal mandate by the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE), training gives significant benefits for your company,” explains Steve, AMS training director. “It improves safety standards, elevates quality, and fortifies your reputation.

“Through the General Woodworking Machinery Training course, your operators will acquire extensive knowledge about the machines they use daily. This specialised training program not only emphasises safety but also empowers your team to understand how the machinery works, optimising the quality of the process, preventing breakdowns and production stoppages.”

Notably, reports suggest that the vast majority of woodworking-related accidents could be avoided with appropriate training.

For over 15 years, AMS has been dedicated to providing woodworking training courses, collaborating with schools and colleges. In 2022, the company proudly introduced its independent training academy in Leicestershire, equipped with its own trainers, machinery, materials, and methodologies.

“Opting for a respected training provider such as Wadkin Bursgreen ensures that your employees receive training of the highest quality and guarantees your business’s adherence to UK law,” says Luke, trainer at Wadkin Bursgreen.

Renewing and certifying operators’ training stands out as one of the most potent methods to ensure the safety and protection of employees and businesses.
