Training seminars

Training your teams at a Marel demo center prepares them to run new installations back home and minimize human error. The hands-on environment allows them to learn and experience different challenges without any interruption to your production, and without being distracted by other demands.

We offer training delivered at a time convenient to you. When visiting us isn’t practical, we arrange online training with live demonstrations and interaction with our specialists.

With in-depth training to operate and maintain new equipment, your staff can update their knowledge and qualifications, gain new expertise and heighten their understanding of the impact of their actions. This improves their ability to:

  • Contribute to plant efficiency and reinforce best practices
  • Quickly resolve common issues
  • Take responsibility for improving production
  • Understand the impact of their actions to reduce the risk of accidents and minimize human error
