Working With Local Authorities

We continue to work closely with many local authorities throughout the UK. Supporting their wide range of services such as highway maintenance (including gully and road cleaning), transportation and waste and resource management.

Our range of operator courses from vehicle mounted access platforms to mini diggers and materials handlers to vehicle banksman provide many local authorities with a full catalogue of courses relevant to the many service areas and environments that they are responsible for. Recognised by the leading association and awarding organisations in the UK, courses are in-line with the relevant National Occupational Standards and industry best practice. They are delivered in a way which promotes efficient use to minimise environmental impact whilst ensuring productive, effective, and most importantly safe operation of equipment.

In addition to our equipment operator training, many local authorities have requested CIWM (formerly WAMITAB) accredited qualifications for their permitted and non-permitted sites across the country, including HWRCs and transfer stations. Helping these sites to comply with their permit requirements and maintain a competent workforce.

Our consultancy services have also benefitted many permitted sites where Technical Competent Manager (TCM) Cover is required. Our team are currently working with several local authorities and provide the relevant and required TCM cover across a range of districts. For many individuals required to complete their biennial COTC test, our COTC refresher course has proved extremely helpful in updating knowledge and awareness.

If you are a local authority looking from a reliable, cost effective and quality training organisation to support your many training needs Certora can help. We provide:

  • A one call service for all your training needs
