Leading utilities and construction training specialist Develop Training Limited (DTL) recently opened the doors of its Midlands and Scottish training centres to showcase the company’s energy training capabilities. The open days at Derby and Linlithgow near Edinburgh attracted delegates from a number of major utility firms and private organisations.
Representatives from DTL’s energy department demonstrated the company’s facilities and outlined the training it offers including ACS gas, smart metering and mechanical.
With smart metering currently rolling out nationwide in residential properties, the energy department is already providing training for major utility companies to help to address the shortage of skilled installers. It also offers smart meter and ACS Gas training courses for commercial facilities.
Its mechanical facilities cover training to deal with fluorinated gases used in refrigeration, air conditioning and fire protection systems. The team also offers qualifications that allow learners to work as 'authorised' and 'competent persons' and deal with facilities such as boiler pressure systems and plant items.
The open days have already attracted new business enquiries, adding to DTL’s high profile customer list that not only includes notable construction and utility firms, but also includes private companies and major public sector organisations such as the NHS and MoD.
