Sidel recognised as provider of high-quality vocational training





The leading packaging solution provider recently received French Qualiopi Certification for its global training methodology, reinforcing Sidel’s commitment to provide additional value to customers through long-term support programmes. Sidel’s commitment to providing high-quality specialist training for its customers around the world was recently reinforced with the award of the French Qualiopi certification. This independently assessed mark of quality for vocational training and skills development, provides assurance that a training provider has rigorous quality management processes in place, while enabling customers in France to access funding that covers part of the training cost.

“We are committed to offering customised training programmes to every single one of our customers, working in partnership with them to assess existing skills, to identify gaps and needs and to propose specific training to ensure continued safety, product quality and line efficiency,” said Olivier Cocheril, VP Asset Performance & Maintenance Services.
