Training Course Recognition

8 March 2022

Sierra 57 Consult training modules have, following a robust review process, been awarded IOM3 (Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining) Quality Assured & Professional Development Approval. Achieving Quality Assured and PD Approved by IOM3, part of the IOM3 Approved Service, recognises the value of ongoing training for professional development and the importance of increasing the knowledge and skills capital of businesses.
The Sierra 57 Consult training courses that have been awarded this status are a blend of classroom and practical experience and are aimed at individuals with various levels of knowledge and capability. The high standards required to achieve this mark reassures learners and employers that the training courses they are undertaking have undertaken rigorous review to gain this recognition.
The courses approved cover a wide spectrum and are
Injection Moulding for Beginners, Injection Moulding for Setters, Intermediate Injection Moulding Theory, Intermediate Injection Moulding Practical, Basic Understanding of Plastics Materials, Advanced Understanding of Plastics Materials and Advanced Injection Moulding. These are all delivered on customers sites on familiar equipment at a pace to suit the trainee.
This structured, practical, and methodical approach to learning helps employers across the plastics industry to retain key staff and develop the skills & knowledge in their organisations to maintain a sustainable and competitive advantage. By engaging in recognised Continuing Professional Development courses it ensures that practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete, allowing individuals to continually up skill or re-skill regardless of occupation, age, or educational level.
Mark Lawson, Managing Director of Sierra 57 Consult, said “Gaining Quality Assured & Professional Development Approval from IoM3 highlights to individuals and businesses that we take learning seriously by investing in independent assessment of our training.  The CPD approval has shown we have created a high-quality training portfolio, and this strengthens our teaching objectives to help alleviate the current skills shortages”.
