Taking service to the next level!

2008 Jul 23

A global certification programme for service and maintenance technicians is to be gradually introduced across the Atlas Copco world. Starting with Latin America, the move aims to establish a uniform, high standard of technical skill that will be internationally recognized.

With mining and construction equipment becoming increasingly advanced, the demand for highly skilled mechanics and technicians has never been so great. When it comes to training however, some countries are more advanced than others and standards often differ.

Now Atlas Copco is introducing a single, uniform standard of training that will ultimately lead to an internationally recognized certification for all service technicians.

For equipment owners and operators, the implication is twofold. Firstly, the competence of local, on-site service technicians will be assured. Secondly, as technicians become internationally certified, they will be able to operate anywhere in the world, ensuring optimum support at all mining and construction worksites where Atlas Copco equipment is used.
