LEEA backs two new Certex courses2 November 2010
Engineers completing the Lifting Gear Examination course will be qualified to carry out periodic examinations of lifting equipment in accordance with the LOLER regulations.
The LOLER and PUWER course focuses on explaining the legal ramifications of both sets of regulations for management level employees tasked with ensuring corporate compliance with statutory instructions.
Alongside its lifting equipment distributor role, Certex has been providing training programmes for 20 years.
However, according to Certex training manager, Adrian Kirkham, the quality and content of courses offered are constantly reviewed to keep material current.
“We work hard to keep our course content continually up to date,” said Kirkham. “So while we are delighted to have won official recognition from LEEA, it came as no surprise to learn that the material within each course syllabus has been verified while remaining intact.
“Certex UK was a founder member of LEEA and has worked very closely with the organisation so our understanding and appreciation of industry legal requirements is second to none,” added Kirkham.
In addition to the two newly accredited courses, Certex is hoping to achieve certification for its Wire Rope Socketing course, which will pave the way for the firm’s entire portfolio to become LEEA accredited.
Certex marketing director, Charles Gillespie, commented: ‘It is a great accolade to have the LEEA’s full endorsement in this way. All our courses are well attended and we are known for running cost-effective training programmes that remain relevant to today’s industry.”
