Valmet Oyj's press release on April 3, 2017, at 14:00 p.m. EET

Valmet launches a renewed customer training offering for its customers - Valmet Learning Services - to help improve the reliability and performance of its customers' processes. The new offering is complementing the company's new services approach - Shared Journey Forward - introduced in 2016.

Valmet Learning Services offers organization-wide training solutions tailored to the customers' needs. The offering includes customized and standard courses, on-site, off-site, or via the Valmet Online Learning Portal. Furthermore, Valmet Training Simulators allow customers to safely practice hands-on procedures and scenarios to strengthen safe behavior and be prepared for troubleshooting and the handling of operational upsets.   

"Today, the combined forces of globalization and digitalization are challenging companies to develop and continuously expand their expertise, and achieving business targets is not only about optimizing equipment and systems. We are launching Valmet Learning Services to better support our customers in training their employees so that they can stay competitive in today's challenging business environment. This is a concrete step toward our vision: to become the global champion in serving our customers," says Jukka Tiitinen, Business Line President, Services, Valmet.

Valmet Learning Services helps customers design their learning paths to progress in their chosen area of interest. Reaching a higher knowledge level not only represents an important achievement for the employees themselves, but can have an impact on KPIs like reliability, productivity, and product quality.

To make sure Valmet's customers get the most out of their training investment, Valmet Learning Services uses a four-step approach: identify individual skills gaps, design a program based on the customers' learning targets, deliver training using modern tools and methods, and secure the outcome through evaluation and assessment.

 "We are committed to moving our customers' performance forward. Reducing risks, improving productivity, and increasing profitability all start with the employees. Confident and skilled personnel ensure safe, stable, and efficient start-ups and operations with minimized environmental risks. We help our customers maximize their potential by training their employees," says Emmeli Olén, Director, Valmet Learning Services.
