Astra Training Raises the Bar in Health and Safety Course Delivery

Share Article

One of the UK’s leading Health and Safety training providers, Astra Training, is set to break record highs in their course delivery in the third and fourth quarters of 2014.

As well as being in partnership with Dearne Valley College with courses available through SSU funding, Astra Training is continually growing in reputation and course portfolio. Astra Training provides a full-range of Health and Safety training courses, including PASMA, IPAF, CISCR Scaffolding, and Working at Height Safety training courses. With one of the largest training courses in the UK – located within easy reach of J38 of the M1 – the company can facilitate many types of training. Astra Training currently has the only premises in the UK which is large enough to house PASMA’s “Towers for Riggers” course. Due to this, PASMA now delivers these training courses at Astra’s premises on a frequent basis. Additionally, Astra is able to facilitate the delivery of Health and Safety training courses throughout the UK at customers’ premises, making Health and Safety training delivery extremely accessible and flexible for the requirements of many clients.

The level of service delivery provided by Astra Training keeps customers coming back again and again. Mike Spencer and the team from the MOD (Ministry of Defence) commented about a course that Astra Training delivered to them: “Great course, great instructor, great environment, will use again."

In 2011, the company moved from Wakefield to Darton to take advantage of new, larger premises, incorporating an indoor training centre. This provided obvious benefits, including the capability of providing Health and Safety training in any weather conditions. The new open floor plan facility covers 4,650 square metres with an 18-metre high ceiling. Since the move, the business has gone from strength to strength, providing a great range of safety training courses and enabling the company to provide courses that they could not have provided in smaller premises. Paul Thompson of PT Refrigeration commented about his experience of Astra Training, “Our delegates received first class training at Astra’s new premises in Darton. The office staff were friendly and very informative, and the trainers were spot on. I would definitely recommend them.”

Astra Training’s client list has grown considerably in recent years, with many ‘blue-chip’ companies forming part of their customer list, including Virgin Atlantic, Rolls Royce, and British Nuclear Fuels.
