NACE Training & Education

As technology advances and workplace methods and strategies need to change with it, there comes a need for service providers, local authorities and general sector business to align with these changes in terms of knowledge, skills, values and abilities. One of the best ways to enhance knowledge and skills is through targeted NACE CPD and ATU technical training modules.

Training is important because it represents opportunities for both service provider and professional to grow their knowledge base, learn more about their immediate surroundings and improve skill set ability, to become better communicators and more effective in the workplace.

Exposing decision makers, managers, professionals and those carrying out domestic site work to relevant and consistent training can help businesses, individuals and companies improve performance, communication and increase results in the workplace, this can also be interpreted as increasing potential income.

Despite the cost of training the return on investment is immense if it is consistent. Training programs can also help prepare industry service providers/contractors and those in local authority for instance to take on more complex types of work and responsibility. These training programs will help candidates to gain valuable learning and the skills that are necessary to function effectively in their respective role.

NACE CPD and ATU modules are typically one to four days in duration depending upon the course taken with a final appraisal by our Director of learner knowledge acquisition, the following CPD and ATU introductory foundation courses are some of the 225 training modules available on a distance learning basis.
