Toolbox Training Van

We know that training can be expensive and we know that to send employees to training centres adds even more cost. This is why we created the Toolbox Training Van. We bring the training to you.

The AKW training van is designed to assist installers by providing a hands-on, practical demonstration of how best to install, commission and maintain some of AKWs most popular products.

The products within the van were chosen using the most common questions that the AKW Technical Team receive, allowing us to show how they should be fitted and set up correctly. Delivered by Paul Baird, who has been a Surveyor and Maintenance Engineer for AKW for several years, attendees will be able to learn from his experience as he discusses and demonstrates best practice for installing AKW products allowing installers to avoid issues that can be caused by poor installation. All attendees will also receive a certificate of attendance as a record of their training.

Don’t just take our word for it…

I would just like to say we found the recent visit of your new training vehicle an excellent service, operatives picked up a number of useful tips from your representatives on setting up and commissioning both the shower units and the digital pumps, all concerned felt it was a really useful couple of hours.” – Adrian Weightman, Project Manager, KeepMoat
