AFI opens Midlands training centre
05 September 2013
UK-based AFI has opened a training venue in West Bromwich. The Midlands Training Centre will start offering IPAF and PASMA working at height courses from early October.
The new facility can provide training for up to 70 delegates with indoor and outdoor practical training areas and four training rooms.
According to AFI chief operating officer David McNicholas the access equipment rental firm decided to open the Midlands Training Centre as a result of the success of the group’s UTN Training Centre in Wakefield.
“Our Wakefield open course centre has been the blueprint for this new centre and for our other open course centres at London East and Liverpool. We have a large and very loyal customer base in the Midlands and we want to ensure that they receive the very best training facilities and services. Our substantial investment in this new centre will mean that it will become a centre of training excellence for AFI,” he said.
The Midlands Training Centre will provide open course training on subjects such as working at height, health & safety, SMSTS and SSSTS site safety, IOSH, NEBOSH and NRSWA.
