At regular intervals we organise and run training courses for supervisors. These encompass general management principles but also deal in a practical way with the day-to-day decisions and problems which supervisors face. View under Events/Courses on left-hand menu. Training is open to members and non-members.


In order to keep companies up to date with legislation and health and safety directives, we co-ordinate a series of seminars designed to help Scottish Engineering member companies and others to operate in accordance with the latest rulings.

Our team of professional operators will ensure that you are in command of all relevant information and where we think it appropriate we will organise input from experts in a particular field.
