Aberdeen - opening Spring 2022

We are excited to announce that a brand new, purpose-built training facility will be opening in Aberdeen this Spring, expanding our presence in Scotland.

Situated to the south side of Balgownie Road in Bridge of Don, just 2 miles from Aberdeen city centre with easy access to the A90 and about 6 miles from Aberdeen airport. Our third training centre in Scotland, it offers purpose built indoor training facilities for our full suite of working at height, first aid and confined space training courses.

The new state-of-the-art training centre will offer all the services and training you know and expect from us, including accredited training for Working at Height, Confined Spaces, First Aid and Advanced First Aid for the renewables, oil & gas and construction industries. And our highly skilled specialist rescue teams can provide cover for high-risk operations such as confined spaces and working at height, both on and offshore. 

As well as 6 classrooms, facilities at the new training centre will include a 17m high work at height tower, a mock wind turbine hub, sloping roof and ladders to practice climbing. And for our confined space and rescue training there will be many meters of crawl spaces with multiple access points above to simulate various confined space environments.

With a large free car park, the centre is 2 miles from Aberdeen City Centre with easy access to the A90 and about 6 miles from Aberdeen airport.
