Each Consortium Member runs a Training School that offers training and mentoring on every aspect of the construction of UJ/UC/UQJ joints on UJC qualified cables. The courses range from a basic course for jointers with no previous experience, to more advanced courses for senior personnel.
The provision of consistent, high quality jointer training is essential for the successful transfer of Universal Jointing technology from the designers into the field. Non-UJC member training schools’ facilities and instructors are sponsored by a UJC member and are Sponsored as providing ‘UJC sponsored’ jointer training and certification, ensuring that high quality training is given and that full traceability can be maintained.
UJC Sponsored Training Schools may train only their own jointing personnel in Universal Jointing (UJ/UC and UQJ) technologies and must only use the staff trained by the UJC certified instructors for this purpose. UJC Sponsored Training School instructors cannot in turn train or certify other instructors.
