Ongoing training: upcoming training proposals

Ongoing training is a powerful lever to overcome the challenges of the moment and project business into the future.
Centrocot's commitment to specialised ongoing training for technicians belonging to companies in the Textile and Clothing sector continues.

Next October, considering the success of enrolments achieved in 2021, Centrocot will once again offer companies the fourth edition of the evening inter-company course for the 2022 – 2023 training year:


FASHION TEXTILE FASHION: raw materials, cycles and technologies

The course proposal, delivered in presence, will be addressed to technicians, sales and marketing office staff of companies belonging to the TAM sector.

The aim of the training course is to provide a general overview of the textile supply chain, from the fibre to the finishing and packaging phase of the finished product, describing the main categories of fibres, yarns and fabrics, production cycles and related technologies.

The training course, lasting a total of 48 hours (October 2022 – February 2023), is divided into teaching modules:


Module no. 1: Fibres, yarns and the spinning cycle (12 hours)

Module no. 2: Orthogonal fabrics and the weaving cycle (12 hrs.)

Module no. 3: Knitted fabrics and the knitting cycle (12 hrs.)

Module no. 4: Textile Finishing (8 hrs.)

Module no. 5: Ennobled Products (4 hrs)


The following aspects will be specifically analysed

– raw materials and their classification;
– description and analysis of textile surfaces
– construction parameters of textile surfaces
– production cycles and related technologies;
– quality parameters and performance according to destination.


Interested companies may participate in the entire training course, or select the interest and participation of their employees in one or more modules of specific interest, depending on the textile sector they belong to and the type of production of the company.

The training course will be enriched by practical exercises in textile surface analysis/sampling.
In October, Centrocot’s distance learning offering of ZDHC courses will be renewed.


On 27 and 28 October, a new edition of the course Chemical Management System – Technical Industry Guide will be offered: this course replaces the previous Chemical Management in the Textile Sector and Top 10 Issues of Chemical Management, updating the topics and adding an in-depth overview of the practical tools offered by ZDHC to companies.
It is a good opportunity for companies who are approaching the protocol for the first time and for those who have undergone training more than two years ago and are close to renewing their training certifications (remember that the value of ZDHC training certifications is 2 years from their issue).


The consolidated Wastewater Management returns on 24 and 25 November.
This is an opportunity to learn more about wastewater and sludge management according to the ZDHC protocol.


The activities related to thematic webinars also continue.
A new edition of the webinar is planned between October and December:
EcoDesign: the textile industry and the sustainable Circular Economy revolution. The webinar intends to take stock of the situation, giving an overview of both the origins of sustainability and its future prospects, providing tools and methodologies for adopting EcoDesign within the business context. Main objective:
– provide an understanding of sustainable product design methodologies and the European reference framework;
– provide tools for constant updating
