The UK’s Glass Technology Services Ltd (GTS), a leading independent provider of glass analysis, testing, consultancy and research, will deliver its introductory glass training course in a format suited to larger organisations and associations.

To be delivered on behalf of British Glass on the 17th May,

‘Glass Appreciation’ will introduce delegates to glass manufacture, processing, benefits, environmental and quality considerations, including practical sessions for melting and inspection.

GTS often provides individual clients with bespoke training on specific topic areas or issues relevant to them, but also works in partnership with larger organisations and associations whose members and wider networks have a need for glass knowledge and expertise.

In partnership with British Glass, the ‘Glass Appreciation’ course is now being made available for anyone wishing to learn more about this unique material.

The course will be delivered in an informative, interactive format by specialists in their respective fields.

Key topics from manufacture, processing and fundamental chemistry to glass properties, defects and failure are covered in an accessible format - making this an ideal introduction for anyone working in glass or otherwise dealing with glass products or issues.

Places are strictly limited in order to encourage an informal atmosphere, increased levels of interaction and participation, hands-on practical sessions and opportunities for delegates to focus on examples specific to their own areas of work and experience.

Whether delegates design, make, source, sell or reuse glass, this course will provide them with the understanding to improve their work with this complex material.
