I have attended quite a few networking events recently and one point that is constantly raised is that I should write a blog for my training company, so this is my attempt at a blog.
My background in delivering training started when I was working for a utilities company and a position had came up in Western Super Mare for a full time utilities and health and safety trainer, I didn’t have the teaching qualifications to do the role, but thought to myself this could definitely be something I would be good at.
I enrolled on a PTLLS course at the last minute and managed to get the qualification before going for the interview.
I got the job and commuted from Bridgend, South Wales to Western Super Mare every day for 3 years with a 3 hour round trip, the company then moved its training center to a cheaper location.
Since then I have trained and assessed a number of different subjects for a number of training providers including electrical, plumbing, gas, health and safety and first aid.
Following the birth of my first child Richie I was working 7 days a week, mainly due to the shortage of staff at a particular training provider, but as you can imagine I missed quite alot.
When my Wife and I found out we were going to have a second child I said to myself that I didn’t want to miss as much as I had with Richie.
On the 27th of October I set up Williams Training and Assessment LTD, initially with the thought that my work would be just freelancing to other companies, but it has progressed from this to also becoming a training provider with EAL delivering 18th edition wiring regulations and pat testing to companies on their premises.
My plan for the Blog is to write a new article at least once a month.
Thanks for reading.
