A West African employment agency turned to TWI for plastics welding training to
expand its capability after investing in new equipment.
Senior plastics welding trainer Andy Knight travelled to the premises of C2K Staffing
in the Senegalese city of Thiès, where he provided training to six technicians to
enable them to use welding machines the company had just bought from Italian company
The training covered butt and electrofusion welding of high-density polyethylene
(HDPE) pipe. Following the four-day programme each of the trainees successfully
passed the relevant entry-level CSWIP exams on welding large- and small-diameter
C2K Staffing provides temporary employment services to companies operating in West
Africa, with a particular focus on the mining, energy, construction and manufacturing
industries. The skills acquired by the company in plastics welding will allow it
to broaden the range of services it can offer its clients.
A spokesperson for the company said: ‘C2K Staffing has organised this training on
HDPE welding for the purpose of having a certified, qualified team of welders as
a flying squad to better assist clients during plant shutdowns or execution of improvement
‘With the demand for HDPE welding techniques from local mining and construction
companies, C2K Staffing is expecting to provide qualified HDPE welders and rental
of the equipment to companies who can’t afford both the equipment and the training
of their employees.
‘C2K is working on having other training sessions by TWI whenever possible.’
