Demand for TT-UK's GRUNDOMAT / GRUNDOBURST Accredited Assessment & Training Facility almost doubles in 12 months
For more than 30 years TT-UK has been in business providing innovative trenchless technology products, they have always offered their customers training on the range of TT-UK products.
Up until just a few years ago, most of the training offered to customers was on-site at the customer’s premises, then TT-UK decided to invest in a custom built training and indoor all weather facility at their Bedford premises in order to be able to offer more in-house training.
Attendance numbers for this training has seen an increase year on year going from over 880 candidates in both 2011 and 2012 to 1,543 already in 2013; an increase of 76%!
TT-UK offer (EUSR accredited) courses on GRUNDOMAT, GRUNDOBURST, Grundowinch and the TT-UK/RSP Suction Excavators, with TT-UK manufacturer’s accredited training available on all their other products.
These courses are available 6 days a week and can accommodate between 6 and 8 candidates with a limit of 4 for the suction excavators. All of the courses cover the products in detail, as well as safety, maintenance, service and after care of the products while also providing the opportunity for candidates to operate the equipment on site in a working environment. The training day normally consists of a presentation, followed by lunch which is included and the practical on-site portion followed by test and examination on the course content usually takes place in the afternoon.
TT-UK is very proud of the excellent pass rate of 98%. They put this success down to the fact that they have 5 expert trainers and a fully qualified assessor who between them have 118 years’ experience working at TT-UK on various Trenchless Technology products.
The courses all offer clients fantastic value for money. Prices include all stationery, literature and product/operator manuals to take away for courses held at the customer’s premises and for training at the purpose built facility in Bedford, prices also include lunch and all refreshments. Upon passing the examination and achieving TT-UK’s exacting standards, each candidate then receives a certificate and EUS Registration card upon completion and to maintain compliance is required to take a refresher course every three years.
Steve Robson one of the trainers and assessor for TT-UK said “We keep the numbers on these courses to a maximum of 6-8, that way we can monitor the progress of the individual candidates throughout the day and if someone is struggling, we can spend more time explaining the products and their applications in more depth until each candidate fully understands”. Steve added “At the end of the training the client’s investment results in fully trained and competent operatives who are fully aware of the products they have covered on each course.”
TT-UK continues to provide regular training for many satisfied customers; these include Balfour Beatty, The Clancy Group, Morrison Utility Services, National Grid, SGN, SSE, Kier MG, Severn Trent Water, Wales and West Utilities, Portsmouth Water and J Murphy & Sons amongst many others.
