Nottingham-based civil and electrical engineering firm McCann has committed significant additional investment in its approved training organisation, after an increase in demand for its range of industry-wide courses.
McCann has received requests for further training to be added to its portfolio from a number of Clients due to the popularity of its existing courses. These include electrical courses covering wiring regulations and initial and periodic electrical inspection testing for public lighting. The company is also looking to introduce additional health and safety courses surrounding electrical safety, moving and lifting, legislation and standards and, emergency preparation.
Alongside the introduction of these new courses, McCann has employed Tony Sexton to support the delivery of training and to ensure the full compliance of the company’s training needs. Tony will also support with and deliver the ‘Highways England Passport Induction’ after McCann received approval from awarding body Lantra in 2018, to deliver the Highways England Common Induction Course.
Tony’s previous experience covers both highways and roads as well as roles with the Highway Electrical Association (HEA). He also brings knowledge of audit processes, training delivery and NVQ assessments.
Speaking about his recent appointment, Tony said, “When I was offered the opportunity to join such a reputable company as McCann, I jumped at the chance,”
He continues, “The investment made by the business in its training programmes demonstrates the importance it places on maintaining the highest standards not only internally, but across the industry as a whole.”
The new courses will be taught at both McCann’s Nottingham Training Centre and Client premises.
McCann’s Training Manager, Ersoy Errol, is delighted with the significant increase in the training courses on offer and hopes to maintain the momentum of growth in this area going forward, “It is great to see such high demand from local councils and companies within our industry for the latest, relevant training across all areas of civil and electrical engineering,”
“We regularly advise Clients with regards to the requirements and expectations of National Highway Sector Scheme 8 (NHSS8). As a result, many come back to us requesting further training and in some cases, recommend our training programmes to other organisations,” said Ersoy.
He continued, “Adding Tony’s experience to our team is fantastic! He is not only aware of the requirements under NHSS8, but also the standards and working practices expected at McCann in order to deliver training of the highest level within the industry.”
