Why Choose This Course

It is common to find that engineers who have an in-depth knowledge of products, services, plant and equipment, policies and procedures, need to engage outside expertise to set official time standards. This is both expensive and inefficient as both parties need to pool their knowledge to achieve optimum results. This programme overcomes this skills gap and results in cost saving and improved overall performance. The programme is about up-skilling engineers and others who design and specify work.
