“This year ICA Bremen continues its popular Classing & Testing training. We will cover essential basics regarding quality of cotton and explore other topics in more detail to give participants good knowledge of important aspects of visual and instrumental quality evaluation for their work in the cotton industry,” explained Karsten Froese, of ICA Bremen.

Learning about machinery

The optional two-day Learning about Machinery training course will be delivered in association with the Institute of Textile Technology and Process Engineering (ITV), Germany’s largest centre of textile research. This training will take place from 18-19 May at ITV in Denkendorf.

 “After the great feedback we got from delegates on last year’s Learning about Machinery course, we decided to offer it once again in cooperation with one of Europe's biggest textile institute, the ITV Denkendorf,” said Karsten Froese.

These training programmes are aimed at individuals who wish to gain an in-depth knowledge in cotton classing, testing and textile machinery.
