A six day, comprehensive training programme concentrating purely on quality issues in raw cotton. It will provide you with thorough training - from the classification of cotton from various growths to practical HVI training on the latest Uster 1000 Machine or Premier ART2, as well as information on other testing equipment.

With a maximum of sixteen participants taking part, the programme promises a more interactive and personal learning experience. We also have the flexibility to tailor the course to meet many special requirements.

Participants will receive a certificate at the end of the course from ICA Bremen which will act as proof of your qualification in cotton classification.
