One of the most difficult questions we are ever asked is what career we would like to pursue. Where...
Exciting news for NOF members. Member company ‘Total Solutions Direct Ltd’ and its Training subsidiary ‘Total Training Direct Ltd’ has an ambitious strategy, a major part of which is forming strategic industrial partnerships with high calibre, like minded organisations. The first long term Industrial Partnership agreement was signed earlier this year with ‘Redcar & Cleveland College’, and ‘Total Training’ latest strategic partnership sees it join forces with ‘Lowestoft College’ through its ‘East Coast Energy Centre’, with bookings for its first full IRATA Rope Access training courses starting 15th June 2020 now being taken.
The world class Lowestoft ‘East Coast Energy Centre’ facility boasts a high specification ropes training rig for individuals and companies to train upon, all with the backing of both partners and their long established and high performing records and infrastructures.
The Covid19 Pandemic meant temporarily delaying the promotion of training courses. However, having worked hard to develop and implement stringent risk assessments, processes and social distancing measures which exceed government Covid19 guidelines, the partnership is now firmly up and running.
Any companies or individuals wishing to learn more or make a booking should contacting Dom McAskill via firstname.lastname@example.org or 01642 646068 in the first instance.
The partnership is pressing ahead with its joint activity and will provide regular promotion of its activities and plans as it builds upon the initial phase of operations. Further information will be provided later topics including: -

The initial rope access offer and plans to add to this
The partnership has can already provide Ropes Awareness and full IRATA Rope Access training courses from Level 1 through to Level 3 delivered during 5 Day Courses including an independent assessment by an IRATA approved Assessor. Training is carried out using the high specification climbing tower, brand new equipment, high specification classrooms and associated facilities within the brand new, world class Energy Centre.
The rational for opening the East Coast centre
Whilst there is uncertainty and concern about what the post Covid19 Pandemic employment landscape will look like, the UK leads on renewable and wind energy and is at the forefront of ensuring an infrastructure that meets domestic, industrial, and commercial demand.
Renewables provide nearly a third of UK power in the UK and half of this is generated by from wind energy so generation from onshore and offshore wind in the UK are central to the shift to an energy system fit for the future.
Offshore wind cost continues to fall, and it is now one of the lowest cost options for new power in the UK, and with billions being invested in offshore wind in the UK during, this investment supports thousands of jobs across the UK in manufacturing, project development, construction, and operations. With a major cluster of operators in the East Coast region, and many of the technicians the world employs trained in the UK, it made perfect strategic sense to partner in the region.
Working closely with employers and other key stakeholders
As a responsible and high-quality Training Partnership, we place our stakeholders at the heart of all we do.
We are working with employers and others to ensure they get the best possible support in accessing and helping shape the further development of our world class Centre and its training.
The intention is to ensure companies benefit from the best of a high-quality Private Training Provider, operational trade access business, and highly respected College with collective staff, facilities, courses, and access to funded training infrastructure.
