Ellard’s training facilities can house groups of up to 6 trainees at a time; however, one to one courses can also be arranged. Each training course can be customised to the individual’s requirements and certificates are issued on completion of the training. Courses can vary from 1 day to a number of days spread over a number of weeks. All requests can be supported so please just ask!
Modules can be retaken and recommendations can/will be made if further training is required. NVQs are available for experienced engineers and are recognised by the Construction Skills Awarding Body.
