Transitioning from fossil fuels to renewable energy is a hot topic, understandably so. Energy companies must deliver a future that is sustainable – and part of that is transitioning into renewable energy forms such as wind energy. For those looking to start a new career – this presents an opportunity to retrain and look towards roles related to this sector. In this article, we identify what those looking to join the wind energy industry should consider.
Often, we find that people assume a confined space must be small – with only one way in and out. This is a common misconception – the reality is that confined spaces come in all shapes and sizes. What makes them confined is that they are fully enclosed – or that it is reasonably foreseeable that it would or could contain a specified risk.

Great course and much more interesting, informative and hands-on than the initial course I sat with a different company 3 years ago. Archie was great! 👏

I recently undertook an STCW course at this training centre the only thing better than the content were the tutors. Everyone at MRS really wants to see you pass and to help you get the best out of yourself during the course. Not only did the swimming pool that the centre usually use cancel due to an accidental double booking but some equipment we were meant to be training with was stolen the morning of one of the exams. MRS staff dealt with this swiftly and effectively by changing the pool and going to buy new equipment on the same day it was stolen to ensure we as the students still got the most out of the course. The pace of content is rapid due to the condensed course but there seemed to always be space to ask questions and make sure each of us understood the principles we were being taught. I couldn't recommend anywhere else in the UK that I would have had as much fun learning.
