Maintenance must be carried out by competent, trained staff, whether employed directly by the hospital/establishment concerned, or Penlon.
A Service Manual will be issued for each product for which training is given.

Guidelines for Product Technical Training
Who to Train?
Our Training Courses are designed for all personnel involved in the maintenance and upkeep of Penlon / East Healthcare equipment. Training for hospital staff ensures that there is a qualified member of staff on hand if required.
Training is at all levels and packaged to suit customer needs. Each course is generally sub-divided into four sections:
- Technical Description
- Service and Maintenance Practical
Training is held in our purpose built Training Facility at Penlon’s Head Office in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. This location is ideal as training takes place in a quiet, undisturbed environment with full and easy access to all products for the hands-on practical session.
Ideally, to maximise practical experience we operate a two student per machine policy. However this is flexible according to individual needs. This allows for hands on experience.
The cost of a Product Training Course is dependent on the duration of the course, which is determined by the number of products to be included and the experience of the candidate.
UK NHS Personnel: Please phone or email for information on special discounted rates.
Course duration times are dependant on product. If a number of products are required an individual training plan will be designed for your needs.
Refreshments are provided including a buffet-style lunch, all of which are included in the price of the package.
Certificates and Course Reports are sent to Managers after successful completion of the course. It is recommended that the certificate be revalidated every two years.
Penlon operates a no-smoking policy in all areas including car parks and rest areas.
Mobile Phones and Pagers
Please turn off all mobile phones and/or pagers during the course to avoid disruption. Messages can be taken by our switchboard on +44 (0) 1235 547000 and passed to the recipient at the earliest opportunity.
