We are committed to providing the best training available within the industry

Ellard &NRG Automation are a leading force within our industry. We pride ourselves on giving an excellent service from the time of your initial enquiry all the way through to providing support during installation and after care.

In addition to being committed to providing the highest possible level of support, we are also committed to providing the best training available within the industry. We have a continual development process in place that ensures our products offer great value for money. Within our new premises we have a dedicated training room, as well as experienced and qualified trainers on hand who can provide you with certificates of attendance for each course.

Training Courses Tailored to Your Requirements

On our technical desk we have fully qualified and experienced electricians with over 100 years experience within the industry covering courses such as product knowledge and understanding, basic electrics, fault finding and wiring. We will tailor courses to your requirements and have assisted in developing a number of products that we supply to the industry cementing us as expert trainers in our fields.

Jonathan Aldred, Business Development Manager for gate and barriers, is also an experienced electrician and gate installer. Jonathan can deliver training on our gate and barrier motors and controls and deliver a overview on gate safety and legislation, including the use of force testers.


The Gate Installer Diploma is a unique training course provided through Ellard.

The course is unique due to the hands-on, practical nature, not just an automation and safety overview course (although these elements are covered).

The training  will cost £999pp ex VAT and will run for 5 days; the days do not have to be consecutive.
