Training

Catalyst Handling takes great pride in the training of our employees. Our levels of employee training and safety are unbeaten in the industry, and are a significant driver of rework for the company.

One of the most complex training procedures we provide is the "Inert Entry Technician" training course. This course runs a full week (50+ Hours) and is both classroom based (Theoretical) and Hands-on (Practical). The extensive training program was designed specifically for catalyst handling while working in inert atmospheres, yet also carefully developed to meet all of the regulatory requirements and recommended practices, to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees while performing this type of work.
