Basic machine training consists of two days of training per class. This class should be no more than eight people.  Out of those eight people, it is best to have Line Operators, Mechanics and/or Electrical Technicians. We require production and packaging materials so we can perform changeovers from one size to another. It is best if the machine isn’t running during the training.
