We provide a range of training courses suitable for a variety of industries – all taught in specially designed training facilities and classrooms. Our courses are taught by skilled trainers most of whom are current or former rescuers.
We specialise in teaching low, medium and high risk confined space training courses - as well as specialist courses such as our PASMA accredited mobile tower course. In our Houghton training centre we have facilities which help us recreate the situations and conditions necessary to teach the right confined spaces skills. Our aim is to teach all our candidates the knowledge and practical skills required for real-life application.
If you’re looking to train more than one person – we can come to you!
Our team has a state-of-the-art mobile training unit – this means they can teach confined space training at any location – including your offices, factory or work site. The towable unit has everything required to complete our low, medium or high risk confined space training courses.
Our team can come to you to teach one of our other health and safety courses – like first aid; or we can work with you to develop the tailored training courses for your specific needs or industry.

May I say how impressed I have been with the sheer quality of cover from MRS; it has been exemplary for my staff and peace of mind. It is great your staff are proactive on my site during a night shift and not just sitting back, professional advice and solutions for everything has also been offered.

I have worked in a training role for various companies in the industry in the North East for over 16 years and have used Houghton to deliver our Confines Space training on a regular basis over the years. We consider them to be the silver service standard - the one others aspire to and feel that the training they provide is second to none.
