This isn’t news to anyone: there currently is a shortage of properly trained technical staff in the labour market. This is a development that we have seen shaping up for a while now, particularly in those industries in which we are active, such as the utility, offshore, petrochemistry, shipbuilding, infrastructure, and industry sectors.
We’ve recently started a new training programme, turning E&I mechanics into full-fledged E&I technicians via a specially developed curriculum based on measurement and control technology, developed together with ROVC. In order to be able to teach effectively, we have decided to start off with a group of experienced E&I mechanics to be trained regarding instrumentation and measurement and control technology. We will determine the entry level of each participant by testing their knowledge regarding electrical engineering, measurement and control technology and process technology.
InAxtion feels that investing in our people’s development is important. We are offering our E&I mechanics the chance to continue to grow and at the same time attempting to solve the shortage of good E&I technicians. All this will enable us to provide better service and create a win-win situation for all parties involved: the employees, our clients, and InAxtion. We feel that this is an investment in the future of all these parties.
Our many years’ worth of experience have shown us that many companies struggle with finding the right staff. The current solution of training technicians in-house is a joint investment made by everyone in the industry, but not a permanent solution. We are actively looking for one. To ensure that the knowledge that is gained during training can be put into practice, we are currently engaged in talks with several clients who are considering deploying our trainees in the E&I field. This allows employers, employees, training institutes and the professional field as a whole to come together and help bring the inflow of workers into this beautiful profession back up to speed.
