Certified instructors

 

Our instructors are all certified and have extensive technical and practical knowledge, and most importantly, they are experienced teachers and instructors who are able to plan and carry out training that develops the skills of each technician, which will optimize the quality the work on repair tasks on and offsite. 

All instructors have extensive teaching experience in the composite field and are certified in blade manufacturing, basic blade repair, nonstructural repair, complicated structural repair, lightning protection systems, trailing edge repair, building up, and complicated repair on leading edge, including different types of soft shells.

Instructors

Ejnar Als Brix

Ejnar Als Brix is originally qualified as a carpenter and holds a Diploma of Education of Vocational Education and Training (VET). Alongside fellow teacher Martin Tomra, Brix is a pioneer within the Composite Department at TECHCOLLEGE. The two have developed the composite specialization within the blade operator education (a two-year VET), in close cooperation with leading Danish wind turbine manufacturers. Brix has 15 years of management experience and more than 10 years of teaching experience, during which his primary areas have included skills development, learning and communication within post-qualifying education. Among other subjects, Brix teaches technology of materials, work safety, and process skills. Regardless of the subject, his aim is to always ensure maximum value for the customer’s production. Brix assists international companies in the process of launching new production plants worldwide and participates in the certification of employees at various levels within the composite industry. Brix has developed and held courses for participants from China, USA, Canada, England, and other countries.
