Training / Education


All our employees attend full-seal technical training, with an ongoing commitment to further internal teaching.
It is the Acumen Policy to invest in its employees. The high customer satisfaction are proof of this investment success.

In addition to this, and also in response to the requests of certain Blue Chip and even small independent customers, Acumen offers standard and fully tailored training courses on specifying, designing, installing, maintaining, and monitoring mechanical seals and support systems.

Upon completion of the course, all company attendees will be tested and upon successful completion obtain certification.

We are happy to supply courses and help with training for your company. We are a franchise looking out for distributors. Our MD believes in Training and investing in staff. Without reputation and good staff, a business can not grow. Mr Andrew Sykes MCGI has been awarded a Level 7 award by City & Guilds Institute. The award was for Leadership & Management. As a consequence of this achievement, Andrew has been admitted to the Membership of the City & Guilds of London Institute (MCGI)

We are proud to say that education is ongoing even at the top of our business.
