XLT is without a doubt one of the leading providers of training in industrial plastics.
Our head poly trainer has had 20 years experience in poly fabrication, piping and training, and teaches nothing but poly and related courses.
We pride ourselves on maintaining a leading edge approach with constantly upgraded resources.
Recently, staff visited one of the worlds leading industrial plastics suppliers Agru, in Austria, to learn some of the latest developments in the field, such as the IR (infra-red) and BCF (bead and crevice free) pipe welding techniques used in very high purity piping systems for pharmaceurical and semi-conductor applications.
Our pipe welding courses are delivered in accordance with the PIPA (Plastics Industry Pipeline Association) guidelines for training and as such go above and beyond standard training package content.
XLT can and have delivered courses on-site throughout Australia and the Oceania region.
XLT is scoped to deliver the following training programs within the PMB07 Training Package:
