Full steam ahead as Spirax Sarco marks 30 years of driving accreditation
22 Oct 2019
Steam solutions provider Spirax Sarco is celebrating three decades of providing City & Guilds course accreditation this year.
The firm was the first and for a period, the only company authorised by the accrediting body to provide steam plant maintenance training.
It began in 1989, following a decision by The Dairy Trade Federation and City & Guilds to introduce a skills testing scheme for the validation and accreditation of maintenance engineers in the dairy industry, leading eventually to a nationally-recognised certificate.
Sally O’Connell, Training Centre Manager at Spirax Sarco, said: “At that time, Spirax Sarco was the only authorised provider of steam plant maintenance training for the scheme."
Since then Spirax Sarco has increased its involvement, with accreditation for both its steam plant maintenance and steam boiler plant fundamentals (Shell Boiler) courses.
Added O’Connell: “Having our courses accredited by City & Guilds provides us with a unique selling point for our training offering and ensures that our delivery remains consistently high.”
