Tel: +44 1494 456815

We offer a wide range of classroom taught courses where our instructors will teach and demonstrate proper testing techniques. Students will gain an understanding of the Instron® systems capabilities - including test method development, safe system operation, validation of test results, and report generation.

Our training courses are divided into two categories: Core and Specialized to cover the full spectrum of training required by users of Instron testing systems.

A number of these courses can be scheduled to be taught at your facility if that is more convenient to you.


1, 2 and 3-day courses for operators, supervisors, or managers who want to understand the full capacity of your testing instruments.

The courses we currently have scheduled at our premises in High Wycombe are shown below. You can select Introduction to Materials Testing  or Bluehill or both to suit your needs. If you are interested in Wavematrix, or Console or any other training please contact us.

Day 1 | Introduction

The course highlights the basics of materials testing including mechanical properties, load/elongation test curves, different types of testing, stress and strain, modulus, yield, pre-set point calculations and application testing with demonstration tests on computerized materials test instruments. Learn to run tensile, compressive, flexural, peel tests, as well as how to interpret test curves and perform calculations.

Day 2 and 3 | Bluehill® Software

Learn comprehensive instructions on the fundamentals of safe operation of the testing system with Bluehill Software. Course participants work on their own computers to program their test applications, run tests on actual machines or in simulation mode, and create their own test methods. Additionally, they will learn how to save, recall, and generate test data, methods, and reports.
