The aim of the editorial, is to reach out to more local companies in the South East. There are still a lot of local companies that don’t know about our services, and use out of area training providers.

Worthing company completes Middle East training contract

Alpha Training Safety Solutions Ltd are delighted to have just completed a seven week training contract, for a professional Special Forces Search and Rescue Team from the Middle East.

Alpha completed the contract with an international training company for 32 persons over a concentrated schedule. The programme was specially designed for the client’s unique needs, and was delivered by Alpha’s specialist training team – some of whom have recently competed as part of the British Olympic team.

Managing Director, Shaun Jackaman said “we knew we had the highest quality specialists to deliver the skills to the client, but we had to demonstrate we could deal with language and cultural differences. We are currently awaiting the next contract which may mean sending teams out to the Middle East.”

Alpha already carry out training nationally, Shaun adds “we have agreements with the NHS and National Grid to name a couple, with a network of specialist trainers across the country”.

Their training academy, on the A27 between Worthing and Arundel, continues to be heavily used, particularly the specially designed Confined Space training area, probably the most comprehensive facility in the South East.

Shaun continues “We run a wide range of health and safety open courses at our academy in areas such as:  First Aid, Fire Safety, Confined Space Entry, Working at Height and Manual Handling… along with more technical courses aimed at Emergency Service personnel.  I would love to reach out to our local market and win more business on our door step”.
