Martin Engineering has now added an online course to its library of Foundations Training programs that teach personnel to make the operation and maintenance of belt conveyors cleaner, safer, and more productive.

The company is expanding its workshop series into three customizable training programs, with the Operations & Maintenance Seminar available as an online course. The seminar takes an in-depth look at methods to improve the safety, performance, and payback of belt conveyors by controlling fugitive material and improving system efficiency. This online training is ideal for any personnel concerned with operating and maintaining belt conveyor systems.

Topics of discussion include material handling basics, conveyor safety, belt alignment, belt cleaning, transfer point improvement, belts and splices, leading edge technologies, and dust management. After studying these topics, staff and operations will benefit by improving safety, justifying and validating investments, and increasing performance and profitability.

Composed of nine 1- to 2-hour course modules with internet-based quizzes, the online course is designed to suit companies and personnel with difficulty in scheduling and attending a full-day live seminar. A certificate of completion will be awarded upon correctly completing all course materials.
