Training

Training has been part of BEMA's ethos since its foundation way back in 1936 when the need for resources in an ever demanding industry meant that without trained staff companies would find it difficult to survive. That demand has changed, in fact the demand has got stronger with many companies now finding it increasingly difficult to recruit staff from a diminishing UK work force.

BEMA is an Approved Centre through EMTA Awards Ltd. We undertake training in the following areas:

  • Production & Manufacturing
  • Engineering Maintenance

The above courses can be run either as part of an Apprenticeship or as stand alone courses.

 

Customised Training

We offer Company Apprenticeships and NVQ’s at Level 2 and 3. We will provide a BEMA Certificate at the end of the Apprenticeship. Company Apprenticeships can be tailored to the needs of the individual and the company. The  same scenario can be applied to Health & Safety Training Courses. We can provide training for your employees on safe working and most health and safety topics. Course duration is from one day courses to anything up to a week or more - to suit your requirements.

 

Health & Safety in the Workplace (General awareness)
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 were introduced to reinforce the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and contain the requirements for a company to give training to all their staff on general awareness. This course, which runs for three quarters of a day, will bring those that require an awareness of Health & Safety in the Workplace to a better understanding of what is required of them.
