Our new training calendar for April 2021-March 2022 has been published this month, with details of our specialist engineering and estates and facilities management courses.
The release of these new dates comes earlier than usual, largely due to the significant demand that continues for training following the disruption caused by COVID-19 earlier in the year. Despite the ongoing impact of the pandemic, we continue to deliver essential training, with a rigorous set of COVID-secure measures in place.
New for 2021/22 is a Verification and validation ventilation & air-conditioning course for those who require an appreciation of how to deliver and manage these systems in a healthcare environment, as in HTM 03-01 and other NHS Guidance.
The lift portfolio will also see changes, with the addition of a Lift management course for those responsible for lift installations within the commercial sector. For healthcare organisations, the Authorised Person and refresher lift management courses have been extended by a day to reflect our new MRL facilities, allowing for further practical experience alongside existing electric traction and hydraulic lift installations.
A new medical gas warning alarms course has been added to the portfolio, covering the installation, commissioning, repair and fault finding on commonly used medical gas systems. This will be of particular value to Trusts who, after attending, will be able to carry out a full range of activities without resorting to specialist contractors.
We are pleased to announce the launch of new Authorised Person confined spaces training, delivered by Morsafe Limited. A 4-day course and a 3-day refresher will be available, meeting the requirements of JSP 375, ACoP L101 (Safe work in confined spaces) and NHS and other similar company procedures.
Healthcare engineering degrees starting April & October 2021
Alongside these new courses, there is much for us to look forward to in the coming year, not least the next intakes onto our 3 unique healthcare engineering degree programmes in April and October 2021. Potential students are encouraged to apply now in order to secure their place in good time.
Hospital engineers apprentice summer school
2021 will also see the return of our popular Hospital engineers apprentice summer school which provides apprentices with a greater appreciation of the HTMs and compliance through practical, technical sessions with expert trainers. If you have apprentices joining you or looking for progression opportunities in the new year then please do register them early. We are a supporting provider on the Register of Approved Training Providers (RoATP).
