LifeScan Scotland, based in Inverness, became part of the Johnson & Johnson Group in 2001 when they acquired the assets of Inverness Medical Ltd. – a medical device company established in 1995 to design and manufacture glucose test strips, and design electronic meters for the global diabetes market.

Today, LifeScan is a world leader in blood glucose monitoring. Globally, more than 20 million people depend on the company’s OneTouch® brand products to help them manage their diabetes. The 340,000 square foot state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facility in Inverness, employees more than 2,000 employees. LifeScan serves more than 90 countries.

From MCP’s extensive training portfolio, Lifescan selected the dedicated on-site training option for their technicians and operators – this held at Lifescans facility in Inverness.

MCP is the preferred partner/supplier to LifeScan for the dedicated Technical Operator Training programme – selected because it supports the development of operator and technicians knowledge to provide a range of skills and techniques to those directly working on production activities.

The successful completion of the Technical Operator Training allows low-risk, high-frequency maintenance activities to be undertaken safely by technicians and operators.

This 1st cohort was attended by 8 delegates and is part of a wider programme – currently, three planned.

MCP is proud to be delivering a range of training programmes including our very popular Technical Operator Training programme, as part of the LifeScan Operator Asset Care initiative.

LifeScan selected MCP’s Technical Operator Training Programme because it is the perfect solution to support its own in-house Operator Asset Care Programme (OAC).
