JR Training Services led by Ronnie Charters, rolled out the red carpet for the first trainees of its training services division at the end of last month, marking the first in an impressive programme of training provision set to be offered by the business.
JR Training Services welcomed 16 delegates to participate in the inaugural course in partnership with G&A Wilson delivering the NEBOSH certified Working with Wellbeing Course.
The NEBOSH level qualification looks at workplace wellbeing at both an individual and organisational level. It was designed for those seeking a greater understanding of workplace wellbeing and the factors that affect it including human resources, health and safety, occupational health, or anyone with people management responsibilities.
Ronnie Charters has 35 years of construction industry experience, including health and safety advisor, trainer and assessor roles at the National Construction College CITB. He is currently NASC Regional Chair for Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Ronnie was thrilled to welcome the first trainees through the door, especially for such an important course topic. He said: “Our first training course was a long time in the making and it was a real landmark moment to see it brought to fruition.
“Workplace wellbeing is an incredibly hot topic across all industries just now and the delegates really enjoyed getting a better understanding of what this actually means and what measures can be put in place to increase wellbeing whilst at work and spot the signs that some of your colleagues might be struggling.
“The session was incredibly impactful, and we were delighted by the initial feedback we received. We now look forward to rolling out our wider programme of training services and modules and look forward to growing this business and making a meaningful impact in the knowledge skills and confidence of our people within the industry.”
JR Training Services will now look to roll out its wider programme in the coming months which includes specialist CISRS (Construction Industry Scaffolders Record Scheme) courses, such as a five-day scaffolding supervisor course and subsequent two-day refresher.
CITB-accredited health & safety and site management courses and NEBOSH-certified courses will also continue to be delivered.
