ATaC Refresher Training Courses

Here at ATaC we are planning to run refresher training courses in December of 2014 and the beginning of 2015.

shutterstock_149345567Refresher training courses are a requirement of the law, however in the past most analytical companies have conducted these in house.

Here at ATaC we are considering running some refresher courses and are looking for some feedback…

We intend to cover the following topics:

  • Working at height
  • Respirator inspection and maintenance
  • Air flow through enclosures in accordance with the HSE’s ideas on airflow.
  • Asbestos notifications
  • And any other topic the members want covered from their own training needs analysis.

The course will last approximately 4-6 hours and we hope to provide greater comfort for anyone partaking, by hosting the training at your own premises.

If you would be interested in the ATaC team coming out to run a refresher course at your premises, please call us on 01283 566467 or alternatively email us at: . Read more
