It is with regret that due to a number of covid related issues we have decided not to offer a training service until later this year.

We do not want to make promises that we can not deliver on and we can not operate under current safety protocols without increasing costs to a prohibitive level. Please keep in touch with us and we will look forward to your call to book training with us later in the year. We will contact all persons who register their details with us as soon as a training service is available. Thankyou.

Welcome to NPC Training. Specialists in Chainsaw Training Courses, Groundcare, Pesticides Training, Safety courses and more. This site is intended to make it easier to identify training that will meet your needs.

NPC TRAINING is an established Lantra Awards Training Centre and can arrange training to suit you and your staff. All the Instructors used are approved by Lantra Awards so they are not only experienced in their field but also have the ability to put this across to trainees. Do not risk attending substandard training courses run over shorter periods and without NATIONALLY RECOGNISED CERTIFICATION. All our courses lead to either a Lantra Awards Certificate of basic skills or Level Two or Three qualifications following independent assessment.

NPC TRAINING can help construct a training programme for you or your staff. Advice can be given on prioritising your training according to risk and the plan could be over a few days or several months.

RISK ASSESSMENT is also an important issue in the workplace. NPC Training can also assist with and advise on your approach to risk assessment so that your workplace is both safe and complies with current legislation.

TRAINING is the single most important issue when it comes to work place safety and it has been proved that it prevents accidents, serious injury and even death. The Provision And Use Of Work Equipment Regulations (PUWER) makes it a legal requirement for employers to provide adequate training for staff on all work equipment that they use. A Lantra Awards Certificate of Basic Skills meets this requirement and it is also recognised by the HSE.
