Where are you based?
We are based at Blaikies Quay. We are opposite the Northlink Ferry Terminal. The entrace to Blaikies Quay is opposite the car park to Union Square.
How can I travel to your facility?
Travelling to our training facility is easy. If you are arriving from the airport then hop in a taxi and tell them “Union Point on Blaikies Quay”.
You can also get a bus from the airport that goes to the Bus Terminal.
If you are traveling by train, our office is a 10 minute walk from the train station. Follow signs for the Ferry Terminal
If you are travelling by car, there are multi story car parks beside our office on Blaikies Quay and at Union Square.
Do I receive a course certificate?
Yes our courses are accredited by City and Guilds.
What is the simulator like?
The simulator is a custom designed, highly interactive system that replicates a typical offshore or onshore electrical network. We make use of this simulator in many of our courses. We have a video which can be found here.
Do you have a portable simulator that I can use in my own facility?
Yes, we have recently developed a portable simulator that allows us to go anywhere to deliver our training courses. Like the fixed version this simulator is very interactive and all activities that can be carried out on the fixed version can also be carried out on the portable one.
Our aim is to improve efficiency within your work place. We deliberately keep our class sizes small as our training is fully interactive– no endless folders of notes, no clock watching. Our courses are based around you and the work you do every day, making them 100% relevant.
