We offer GWO accredited training at two of our training centres, in Fife in Scotland and Knottingley in West Yorkshire.
We will also soon be offering this training at our centres in Aberdeen and Rhondda in South Wales.
Facilities include purpose-built indoor training facilities to deliver an ultra-realistic training environment, a 17m tower for work at height training, and a decommissioned wind turbine at our Fife centre. In addition, we have an 8m scaffold access system designed to simulate industry scenarios for Working at Height, rescue, and training drills. Key features include ladders to perform ascending/descending exercises using twin hooks (for ladder rescue), trap doors, gates, hatches and guard rails, sloping and flat roofs, both with open edges. Additionally, freestanding towers enable training in suspension, a suspended rescue and a casualty stretcher rescue.
We are delighted to be able to support the wind industry and provide training that keeps delegates safe and capable of applying their learning in real life. Our instructors hold nationally recognised teaching and assessing qualifications and are experts in their subject matters. They are also operational rescuers working on turbines – so they have real-life stories, which brings the theory to life in the classroom. And our state-of-art facilities replicate the conditions that candidates experience working in their typical environment.
Our expertise in working at height and delivering GWO accredited courses has developed over many years, as have our facilities.
Our teams are passionate about what we do, and all work towards the same goal, unchanged since our inception in 1902, which is to keep people safe.
