Onsite Training

Is Onsite Training right for your situation?

When training is arranged to be delivered onsite, the client is required to provide all plant/equipment, applicable PPE and resources necessary to complete the practical component of the course. The client is also required to provide a suitable classroom environment to conduct the theory component.

Below is a list of the courses that can be delivered on site, along with a guide as to what equipment is required to successfully deliver the training and assessment. In some cases we may be able to substitute equipment or we may be able to bring our own equipment, individual circumstances must be discussed with Admin before confirming a booking
