Profile of Access Training Services

Access Training Services was established in 1997 by Dave Palmer after leaving the post of Training Manager with SGB Youngman. Since this time the business has grown substantially into one of the country’s leading specialist on-Site training resources.

Having access to some of the country’s best freelance instructors in their field gives us the largest spread of Health & Safety topics of any single training resource in the U.K.

Working @ Height training remains our specialist area but we pride ourselves in supplying Work Equipment training and Competency Assessments of the highest quality anywhere in the United Kingdom.

Our work is not just confined to the U.K. as we provide our services in Europe, Ireland, Malta and the Middle East.  We will travel anywhere to assist our clients in preventing fall deaths and serious injuries. Our most recent contract overseas was for the Egyptian Drilling Company, training fifty employees to build and inspect tubular scaffold structures for both off and on shore applications, which proved to be very,  beneficial to our client and their staff.

Our strength lies in the fact that we provide our services on client’s premises or on-site using our client’s own, or hired-in equipment, hence saving our clients valuable travelling time and expense.

All our instructors have a wealth of experience, skills and knowledge and this allows us to provide our clients with a very high standard of training. We are a registered PASMA training centre, members of the NASC and work extremlely closely with the HSE.

Access Training Services is a fully accredited CITB training resource with Dave Palmer being the Principal Instructor (Northern) for Scaffolding and Working @ Height training.

We are constantly expanding our portfolio, and the services we offer, but we will only include training services into our range when we feel they have been developed enough to meet our exacting standards.

Many of our courses are accredited by the CITB. We can obtain grant approval for most of the safety based courses that we run for levy paying members.

We are firm supporters of the fact that training does make a huge difference. We believe that training is an on-going process and we therefore provide refresher training for all our practical skills-based courses, which we recommend are taken every three years.

We also provide our clients with a Saturday morning service. Although there is a small surcharge for this service it is very popular as it allows maximum productivity during the normal working week to be maintained. Please enquire when booking your course.
