GT Engineering Academy


Since more than ten years GT Engineering teaches machine manufacturer Technical Department on how to use the IEC and ISO Standards harmonised to the machinery directive.

We can prepare training on the implication of the Machinery Directive for both manufacturer and user. We can clarify the content of most Technical Standards: from ISO 14118 to ISO 13849-1 from IEC 62061 to IEC 60204-1, and many more, since we are part of the team who wrote those standards.

Our engineers have an electrical background and, as such, we can help your electrical engineers in understanding the difference between an SCCR and an Ultimate Breaking Capacity (Icu); or if an external disconnector is required on all Control Panels, comparing the IEC 60204-1 requirements with the ones to be followed in North America.

We can support your HSE department in understanding how to assess the electrical risk in your company, or we can do electrical safety training in your factory or remotely, using the most common platforms.

If you export machinery to North America, we can organise training sessions on both electrical and Mechanical safety standards: From UL 508A to NFPA 79, from the CE Code to C22.2 N°286, to risk assessment and risk reduction according to the ANSI B11.0 and B11.19.

Our trainings are appreciated for the involvement of the participants, for the practical standpoint we work from and for the fact that we keep monitoring your understanding during the whole session.
