Delegates have heaped praise on the International Cotton Association’s annual training programme, Complete Cotton, which concluded in Liverpool, UK, recently.

Thirty seven delegates from all sectors of the global cotton industry successfully completed the annual training programme, the ICA said on its website.

During the training, 19 industry experts delivered a series of 20 training modules over 10 days that covered the complexities of the cotton industry, from growing to spinning and everything else in between.

The training left the participants gushing with praise.

Dawid Wajs, a delegate from Brazil’s Vicunha Têxtil said, “I took part in Complete Cotton with two main expectations – to increase my networking and to gain knowledge from the delegates and speakers. After 10 incredible days, I learned so much and got to know so many people, I can definitely say that Complete Cotton exceeded my expectations and the experience has made me a better cotton man.”

Tom Phan of Vinh Phat Company, Vietnam had this to say about the training: “By joining the ICA Complete Cotton class of 2015 in Liverpool, I met many friends from around the world that will benefit my future career. Before attending the class, my knowledge was very limited. Besides spinning, I did not understand much about ginning, logistics or arbitration, but after 10 days training, with help from speakers and friends, I am now very comfortable with the whole process of cotton, from growing to spinning.”

During the course of the training the delegates also got the opportunity to network, socialise and take in the sights of Liverpool. They also visited Quarry Bank Mill – founded in 1784 and now restored as a fully working cotton mill and museum.

Speaking after the event, Kai Hughes, ICA managing director said: “Complete Cotton remains one of the industry’s top training programmes. It has provided an excellent grounding for many of today’s key players in the cotton world. This year’s course was another sell-out and with 100 per cent of the delegates rating it as ‘excellent/good’ we know that it was a great success.” (SH)
