Company forges reputation as competence-based global training leader
The EPIT Group has formed a company in Kazakhstan, called Kazex, employing local staff to utilise their expertise which will enable competence training and consultancy services.
This facility will primarily benefit electrical and instrument technicians requiring training in Kazakhstan.
EPIT, which operates from a custom-built unit at Blackburn Business Park, near Aberdeen, is increasingly widening its scope in training and consultancy on a worldwide basis - including the Caspian Region, USA, the Middle East, Australia, Singapore and India, as well as the UK market.
The company provides services across a broad spectrum of industries including on and offshore petrochemical, energy, fuel storage, sewage/water treatment, defence, distillation and manufacturing plants. It has also established a close relationship with Falck Nutec – the world’s largest provider of safety training for the offshore industry.
The EPIT Group now provides a suite of 12 of its bespoke competency training package. These courses range from one to five days in length and are collectively delivered under the ComPlus Programme.
The company is also an accredited CompEx approved training centre. The CompEx five-day course and two-day refresher course are now an integral part of EPIT’s comprehensive training portfolio.
EPIT’S portfolio includes technical training, competency assessment and comprehensive consultancy services. The company’s team of consultants have expertise in various EC directives including EMC, PED, Machinery, Low Voltage and ATEX. Working closely with notified bodies and test laboratories, EPIT Group can support the development of product compliance from concept to market.
The company, which is endorsed by the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), can present courses on any site on a worldwide basis - each of which can be customised to meet the client’s specific requirements. The clients include blue-chip companies such as AMEC, Shell, BP, Scottish Water, RBG, Wood Group, Halliburton, Schlumberger and Caterpillar (Holt), in the US.
EPIT director Alison Cox pointed out: “This new facility enables us to grow our business and increase our ability to provide a more comfortable and full-equipped environment for our clients.
“We can now model this facility worldwide and have the ability to expand into areas we have targeted such as Nigeria which needs to have competence-based training - thus insuring a safer working place for the hazardous area industry”.
