Argo Mobile Repair Team (Argo MRT; Ely, England), a company specializing in composite metallic repairs, and Advanced Composites Training (ACT; Ontario, Canada) announced in July a joint collaboration that is said will deliver the most comprehensive hands-on training curriculum in composites available worldwide. Further, the collaboration will enable both companies to build new opportunities for supporting aircraft structural repairs, with education and employment opportunities for composites technicians.
“Collaborating with ACT to deliver these highly- accredited composite repair courses from our dedicated training facility in Devon is an exciting development for Argo MRT and we look forward to combining our expertise to further enhance our business offerings,” says Jeremy Bateson, head of engineering at Argo MRT. “This relationship with ACT underscores our customer-focused commitment to delivering premium composite repair services and our commitment to investing in the continued development of this field.”
ACT delivers approved and accredited composites training for civilian and military technicians and engineers alike. These courses, which provide trainees with the skill set to perform composite repairs in a number of industries including aviation, aerospace, automotive, marine and renewables, are set to be well received in the U.K., Europe and beyond. Argo MRT believes that, with its own flexible and skilled teams, and bringing decades of experience from a broad base of aerospace backgrounds, that the collaboration will be a success.
“Teaming up with Argo MRT will enable us to deliver our training courses in the U.K.,” comments Wilson Boynton (CET), president at ACT. “Established in 1996, we are committed to staying current with the latest improvements in composite technologies, delivering state-of-the-art training techniques and unparalleled course syllabi.”
The ACT courses will be hosted at Argo MRT’s training facility in Devon in the Southwest of England, located for accessibility and local resources. The first course will be held later this year with full course details and dates to be announced shortly.
