We offer innovative and engaging technical training programmes for energy, engineering and manufacturing organisations.

Based in Nottinghamshire, UK, we specialize in the delivery of technical training programmes for the utility, manufacturing and heavy industry sectors. Our accreditations and affiliations with professional bodies such as the Institution of Engineering and Technology and Institution of Mechanical Engineers help us to offer a wide range of courses that support the development of individuals. Many of our courses are viewed as the industry standard for the power sector and beyond.

Our technical training courses are brought to life by the wealth of knowledge and experience of our trainers, many of whom have many years’ experience in the power sector and outstanding technical knowledge.

Our purpose-built facility allows us to deliver a truly memorable experience to each of our learners.  We go a step further by including real-life elements where possible to keep learners alert, taking them out of the classroom wherever possible and getting them used to the real world of work whilst still in a safe training environment.

Knowledge Assurance / Training Needs Analysis

We assess technical knowledge held by staff, allowing strengths and weaknesses on a certain topic/discipline to be quickly ascertained. Where gaps are identified, proactive actions can be taken in the form of training and development to increase knowledge and maintain staff competency.

Our tool can be tailored to the business needs in terms of topic and questions asked. The user can answer the questions from anywhere – the online nature of it allows for greater flexibility for even remote staff. It also allows you to see results depicted in graph form for easy interpretation, allowing for swifter action to be taken where necessary.

CoPES

The Community of Professional Engineers and Scientists (CoPES) is a professional development community which promotes and supports all engineers and scientists toward achieving professional registration. If your organisation proactively supports workforce development, then CoPES can help the organisation and its employees achieve its goals.

The benefits of CoPES include the motivation to increase skills and knowledge, which is appealing to both prospective and existing employees.  Professional development further demonstrates evidence of expertise, competence and commitment - those who become registered will spend a number of years developing skills, knowledge and understanding within the engineering/scientific fields. Competence can also be bench-marked across all sites, allowing for knowledge to be standardized across multiple locations.
