Did you know that our Spirax Sarco UK and Ireland training centre has been COVID secure since the beginning? Our training team has never stopped and has persevered in their commitment to our customers the whole way throughout this pandemic.
Our UK training centre manager Sally O'Connell tells us a bit more about what's been happening over the past few months, the training courses we are currently offering and the measures we have in place during this time.
Mike Maslanka and Tom Suwart are both steam systems experts and trainers at Spirax Sarco's UK Steam Technology Centre (UKSTC) in Cheltenham. They decided to undertake the Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme (BOAS) Operator Award, here they tell us what it was like preparing and taking one of the toughest courses in the industry.
Spirax Sarco UK's Steam Technology Centre now has another BOAS certified trainer - Tom Suwart. Tom is now one of the few people in the UK to be awarded the highly regarded Boiler Operation Accreditation Scheme (BOAS) Trainer Certification by the Combustion Engineering Association (CEA).
There is no doubt that training as we know it has changed significantly since the UK and Ireland entered lockdown earlier this year with all face to face based training and development courses either cancelled or postponed to a later date.Traditionally, all training courses delivered by the UK Steam Technology Centre (UKSTC) had been face to face. However, we have listened to what our customers say they need right now and have enhanced our offer with a range of choices across our training and development programmes.
We are delighted to announce that Spirax Sarco UK has partnered with The Institute of Healthcare Engineering and Estate Management (IHEEM) as a knowledge partner to deliver courses relevant to Healthcare Engineers.
