A West African employment agency turned to TWI for plastics welding training to expand its capability after investing in new equipment.

Senior plastics welding trainer Andy Knight travelled to the premises of C2K Staffing in the Senegalese city of Thiès, where he provided training to six technicians to enable them to use welding machines the company had just bought from Italian company Ritmo.

The training covered butt and electrofusion welding of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe. Following the four-day programme each of the trainees successfully passed the relevant entry-level CSWIP exams on welding large- and small-diameter HDPE pipe.

C2K Staffing provides temporary employment services to companies operating in West Africa, with a particular focus on the mining, energy, construction and manufacturing industries. The skills acquired by the company in plastics welding will allow it to broaden the range of services it can offer its clients.

A spokesperson for the company said: ‘C2K Staffing has organised this training on HDPE welding for the purpose of having a certified, qualified team of welders as a flying squad to better assist clients during plant shutdowns or execution of improvement projects.

‘With the demand for HDPE welding techniques from local mining and construction companies, C2K Staffing is expecting to provide qualified HDPE welders and rental of the equipment to companies who can’t afford both the equipment and the training of their employees.

‘C2K is working on having other training sessions by TWI whenever possible.’

TWI has worked with businesses all over the world to deliver training that exactly matches its clients’ commercial needs. Available either within one of its global offices or on-site at a company’s premises, training from TWI ensures engineers and technicians have the up-to-date knowledge and skills they need to stay competitive.
