In August 2011, AVK Norway has officially opened their Competence Center at the main office in Sandefjord. This is a training arena that will offer practical training and demonstrations.
The main purpose of this center is to communicate knowledge, present new solutions and prompt knowledgeable discussions. The target group is not only AVK employees but also customers, end-users and consultants. AVK Norway want the participants to become familiar with the technical equipment and to learn the proper use of AVK products.
The classes are aimed at contractors and installers from both the private and public sectors, as well as the consultants.
As AVK Norway present new solutions and technologies, they simultaneously facilitate personal training and practical hands-on experience. Manhole safety is a very central topic at the courses held by AVK Norway.
The Conference Center is equipped with a valve system where AVK Norway is able to demonstrate gate-/, air-/ and regulation valves up to 10 bars pressure.
Some of the work needed to get the Competence Center ready was carried out by employees outside regular working hours.
