Construction Courses Easily Explained With Trade Assessments

In the current economic climate with so many younger people unemployed it is good to see Trade Assessments, a local Hampshire training provider taking active steps to help those looking to improve their career opportunities in the construction industry by launching a brand new website packed full of useful construction training information.

David Finden, Managing Director of Trade Assessments Limited (TAL) said,

“We have a wealth of experience and expertise in the construction industry but realised that it is very difficult for employees and employers to find the best course available for their career in construction. CPCS cards and CSCS cards emphasise the need for safety and training, which is vitally important for everyone on construction sites. They also promote formal training with NVQs which again makes sense by increasing safety awareness as well as the quality of work by employees on sites”.

Mr Finden explained how they are happy to use their knowledge to help people gain recognised qualifications and skills so that they are able to improve their career prospects. This includes speaking to those thinking of undertaking an apprenticeship to make sure that they are aware of what is involved and the different options they need to consider.

Based conveniently in central Hampshire, Trade Assessments Limited are widely respected and recognised as leading trainers in their field and provide a bespoke service collecting students from either Winchester or Alton train stations to make it easy for those that do not have their own transport and who are unable to access the bus service to get to the centre, whether for training or to take a test.

Trade Assessments have delivered quality courses and supported students of all ages, on government funded and non-funded courses for many years, helping them to pass the necessary tests to gain the formal qualifications they were seeking. However, Trade Assessments had never previously had a website so were reliant on passing on their knowledge through word of mouth and working in partnership with a number of prestigious colleges; partnerships they are keen to continue even with a new website in place and more candidates contacting them directly.

Amongst the colleges that Trade Assessments work with are Eastleigh College, Isle of Wight College, Andover College and Sparsholt College. Trade Assessments Ltd are a Construction Skills Training Provider, recognised as an “Approved Centre” by the Construction Awards Alliance (CAA) and are also trusted by other leading bodies. These include: being an accredited Matrix training provider; an accredited CPCS Test Centre certified for CPCS Plant Training and Testing; as well as being recognised with NPORS for Plant Training and Testing; accredited with City & Guilds to carry out Modern Apprenticeships; and having accreditation to carry out NRSWA reassessment qualifications.

Accredited testers are able to put students at ease and have a range of construction skills and knowledge that they use to help students achieve their full potential and will happily chat to anyone who needs additional information as they know that even the best websites will not answer everyone’s questions.
