2014 Training dates

Dates announced for 2014 ‘Cotton Classing & Testing’ training

(Pictured: Class of 2013)

We will be delivering our next training programme from 22 - 31 July in Bremen, Germany.

The eight-day training covers a series of modules delivered by industry experts from ICA Bremen, the Bremen Fibre Institute (FIBRE) and other leading companies; from classifying various growths of cotton to practical HVI training on the latest equipment - including Uster 1000 and Premier ART2.

Karsten Froese of ICA Bremen, explains: “We have listened to the feedback from last year’s programme to further develop our training, keeping the sessions which were found to be the most useful but also adding new sessions to provide a more thorough overview about the processing of raw cotton. Whilst the training is still concentrated on the evaluation of the quality of the raw fibre, these new sessions will give participants a better basic knowledge about spinning, weaving, knitting, finishing and the requirements of raw cotton fibre. As always, participants will also receive personal attention to meet the individual needs of their firms. Last year’s programme was a sell-out and we expect this year to be the same.”

Carlos De La O Perez (FC Stone), one of last year’s delegates said: “I have been to various cotton classing training programmes and this is the best by far”.

The programme is aimed at individuals who wish to gain an in-depth knowledge in cotton classing and testing. Delegate places are limited to 16 so early booking is advised.
