The Training Association (WEST)

Who are we?

Our courses can be tailored to meet individual requirements and timed to fit in with the workload of the business.

We provide professional training and guidance gained from years of experience in the industry. Our aim is to provide cost effective training at local easily accessible venues, running courses on-site when appropriate.

The Instructors we use are professional, well established, highly skilled and trusted within the industry for their own expertise.

Over the years we have developed many partnerships and continue to work closely with HSE, NPTC, NRoSO and BASIS to name but a few. So you can be sure that whatever the current legislation or assurance scheme expects we are able to deliver the relevant training. For a friendly voice at the end of the telephone call us now.
