This was a 2 day Stores Incoming Inspection course for Silk Way Technics, and what a great session it was with lots of engagement and sharing.
This was my first time to visit Baku, Azerbaijan and I was extremely impressed by the infrastructure and warm hospitality of the people.
As an added bonus, I got to tour their Stores facilities to share my experience of requirements to maintain compliance to regulations.
Thank you Silk Way Technics for making this training so enjoyable.
