"The International Maintenance Seminar covers how to optimise planning for more predictable and preventative maintenance, reducing downtime to achieve better profitability and more production capacity. For me, the seminar also offered good possibilities for exchanging ideas and benchmarking with participants from other countries and cultures, which I personally find very interesting.

The seminar was a mix of practical tasks and theoretical lessons with real-life cases. Most of the trainers had many years of experience in commissioning, project management and maintenance of cement plants around the world. They were competent, well-prepared and enthusiastic. The whole seminar was well-organised, emphasising punctuality so as not to waste time. And when you come home, you can use the compendium FLSmidth sends after the course to go even deeper.

The FLSmidth Institute seminars really give you the impression that they happily share their expertise instead of delivering a lot of sales arguments!"

"It was my pleasure to participate in the FLSmidth Cement Production Seminar that was held in May 2011 in Copenhagen and Vietnam. These two places seemed to be carefully selected as they have provided good studying environments, and I have involved in many discussions that focused in cement industry issues with my other colleagues, the thing that have enriched my knowledge in cement technology.

The training contents covered all cement manufacture aspects. The lectures and the workshops were addressed in a very sophisticated sessions. All instructors were either experts, machinery designers, or commissioning team members, the thing that added a value in the term of exchanging experience and knowledge. The training seminar was very well designed in the terms of: time, place, knowledge, food, entertainment, social activities and proper schedule. Apart from being introduced to experienced staff from FLSmidth, gaining friends from cement sector was highly appreciated. Hence, keeping the contacts details of all participants for future assistance.

In conclusion, I gratefully say that it was worth to attend the ICPS."

"The FLSmidth International Cement Production Seminar (ICPS) is an excellent learning ground for all levels (Engineers to Plant Managers). Spread over a period of 3 weeks, the seminar covers all process aspects for cement manufacturing, along with some lectures on the Mechanical, Electrical and Instrumentation side of the Industry. It maintains a fine balance between today's technology and newer methods or further innovations in grinding, burning, and other maintenance aspects. It is a great platform to network with people from various countries (more than 10 during my time), wherein people share their own experiences of the Industry. Given the difference in quality of raw materials in different countries one gets to know more about possible problems and solutions.

During my 3 week stint at the seminar we visited two of the newest FLSmidth plants in Vietnam. It was a great experience, and the schedule ensured a mix of training and leisure. I would highly recommend this program as one gets a detailed insight on cement manufacturing, exposure to FLSmidth culture and Copenhagen."

"The International Seminar on Cement Production is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for all of us as process engineers and plant managers. The course opens new doors to technology, experiences, best practices and innovation, which will increase our area of influence in order to achieve our goals.

The three weeks of the seminar seem very short when you look at its huge content regarding cement production, but FLSmidth has structured it well and there is a perfect balance between the theory of the process, maintenance aspects, new technologies and technical visits, which reinforce the knowledge acquired.

The cement seminar has the strength to create knowledge networks in which chemical, electrical and mechanical engineers can share their knowledge and experience to improve and resolve the new challenges in the cement industry. The Cement Seminar is undoubtedly a must for those wishing to attain new levels of excellence."

"FLSmidth's international Cement and Process Seminar covers both the theory and the practical aspects of the main points of the cement manufacturing process. The seminar provides excellent information regarding Process, Quality, Automation and Maintenance, which helps understand many of the stages of the cement manufacturing process.

During the two field visits to the Miami (U.S.) plants and the visits to the Technical University and to FLSmidth's Danish facilities, we came into contact with many experts who shared their knowledge and experience and with whom we shared a lot of valuable information.

I shared the experience of the seminar with over 30 colleagues from other plants around the world, from 5 continents and of more than 15 different nationalities. Being in contact with these people helps you learn about how they work in their own plants, their different cultures, their customs and their countries.

After the three weeks, you finish the course satisfactorily, with new knowledge and many friends. I recommend the seminar because it is not just for people who work in Process; other people, such as maintenance personnel, people who work with raw materials, quality control, etc., can also participate. The experience greatly enhances the seminar. I would recommend this seminar to anyone working in the field of cement.

Thanks to FLSmidth for its excellent hospitality and coordination of the seminar."

"Dear Mr Staffan,
We are indeed very happy that the training course was held so successfully. The three consultants were excellent. They knew the topic so well. All my members including myself who attended some sessions had greatly benefited from the lectures. I personnally like the session on the Work Group study. Everybody is like going back to our university time, trying very hard to practice what we have learned during the lecture to answer the questions given. Very good response was received.

Hope to work with you and your consultants again in future courses.

Last but not least, send our best regards to the three excellent consultants.
