Our Training

Combico UK represents the specialist training arm of the First Choice Group and provides technical training courses for technical engineers within the foodservice industry at the dedicated onsite training facility. Training is provided by Martin Dagnall, who heads up all areas of Combico, as part of the First Choice training division, and continues to expand the services and courses provided. With more than 25 years of progressive experience in the commercial catering equipment industry, Martin initially started out as a trainee electro-mechanical engineer and progressing to management level and trainer. More recently he controlled all aspects of a service company within the industry, as the Managing Director. Before bringing his wealth of knowledge to Combico in July 2014 as the Technical Training Manager.

This year has already seen a number of exciting developments taking place for this sector of the business, as engineers from across the UK and even as far as Turkey and Australia have already attended training at the dedicated facilities in Cannock, Staffordshire.

After extensive investment in the facilities and eductaional technology, catering engineers who now attend the courses on offer will benefit from top of the range software, meaning videos, presentations and exploded view drawings are all displayed in high definition quality on an 84 inch high definition interactive screen. The built in PC software and ‘multitouch’ functions ensure that trainees can actively engage with the training materials and take away useful digital information via the USB port. It also ensures that Technical Training Manager Martin Dagnall can provide effective and engaging courses for those who attend. Combine this latest technology with live equipment, in a fully functioning kitchen, and engineers can expect the very best in technical training from Combico UK.
