Aspects Total Training Bring CISRS Accreditation to Coventry
The provision of CISRS-approved scaffolding training in the Midlands has been increased through the launch of Aspect Total Training Ltd.
The Coventry-based training provider is now offering COTS, Inspection, Part 1 and System Scaffold courses, having gained CISRS accreditation earlier this month.
The site on which Aspect’s purpose-built facility is situated has undergone a number of changes in recent years, having been converted from a pub to a scaffolding storage depot.
Its change of use to a training centre was driven by Aspect’s Managing Director Glenn McFall, an experienced scaffolder and scaffolding contractor, who was initially seeking a place to train his own operatives.
“In the past, our operatives have had to travel to Wakefield, Nottingham and Newcastle to undergo CISRS training, which incurs travel and overnight accommodation costs.
“So we thought it would be useful to establish a training centre in Coventry to provide extra capacity for contractors in and around this area. It’s taken us two years to gain planning permission and then carry out the necessary works required to lift the roof of the storage depot and fit it out as a training centre but the hard work has really paid off.
“We’re really proud to have gained CISRS accreditation and are already looking forward to offering Part 2, CPD and Advanced training in the coming months.”
Dave Mosley, NASC Training Director and CISRS Managing Director, added: “Glenn and his team have done an excellent job with the facility, the training area in particular is first rate. It was obviously a long time in the planning stages, however it appears to have been worth the wait, well done to all concerned.”
