CROHMIQ COLLEGE TM  

 

CROHMIQ College courses have been developed to provide an essential understanding of electrostatic hazards, static protective FIBC and CROHMIQ static protective FIBC technology. The courses are intended for Qualified CROHMIQ Manufacturers and Distributors and end users of CROHMIQ FIBC. Courses are delivered free of charge in the form of on-line presentations via GoToMeeting, which enables multiple trainees, even from different locations, to login and join the presentations. All that is required is a computer with speakers, or a telephone can be used for audio via a local free number.

Each presentation lasts 30 to 40 minutes, and two or more presentations can be combined to make a longer course if time is available.
