Training facilities 

In addition to 6 dedicated training rooms – our centre has dedicated confined spaces vessels and crawl spaces that allow us to deliver realistic confined space training. Our centre features a network of tunnels – that has been used to train underground miners. Today the space has been restructured and can be used to train delegates who work in a wide variety of industries. 

The tunnels feature walkways, boxed twin crawl ways, shafts and different levels. The spaces can also be filled with obstructions, sounds, alarms and artificial smoke, to recreate emergencies and real life scenarios. 

Our centre has purpose built working at height facilities – including a 5.5 meter scaffold system and a mock wind turbine. The scaffold system is indoors, so we can use it year round – and features additions and accessories that can be used to simulate almost any working at height conditions. They include ladders, trap doors, gates, guard rails and a sloping roof. 

The mock wind turbine allows us to provide a range of courses for the wind turbine industry – and the renewables industries.

Kyle Jones, Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council

An informative course with a relaxed atmosphere. Many practical experiences shared to emphasise the subject being taught.

Andrew Woodham, British Airways

I was just talking to the delegates about the course!! They said it was fantastic, really thorough and totally put them through their paces! What great feedback! It also re-enforced their H&S awareness which is always something we like to do. Thank you. They said it was the best training out of any other training provider we have used previously. It kept them on their toes, especially when they set traps on their equipment. Great stuff!

Michelle Ashley, HR&Training Supervisor, Celtic Vacuum Ltd
