Ecotricity was founded in 1995 as the world’s first green energy company and now supplies almost 200,000 customers across Britain from a growing fleet of wind and sun parks.
Anybody working on onshore wind turbines, from technicians and contractors to supply chain workers, must first complete Renewable UK and Global Wind Organisation accredited training courses.
Ecotricity decided that the most cost-effective way of receiving this training and getting the right level of expertise would be to partner with an external training provider.
Ecotricity engaged with several training organisations before talking to HFR Solutions CIC.
After just one or two occasions of working with HFR Solutions CIC, Ecotricity experienced such an improvement in the service they were receiving and a direct increase in their delegates’ enjoyment of the training that they made the decision to work exclusively with HFR Solutions CIC and have been doing so for the past 18 months.
Adrian Farrow, Health & Safety Officer, Operations & Maintenance, for Ecotricity feels that the positive impact on confidence of the workforce is testament to the quality of the training.
Adrian says, “The confidence in our guys has undoubtedly grown. We have found the training to be very professional, in particular, the Working at Heights training. HFR Solutions CIC adjusts the knowledge delivery according to the needs of the delegates but without missing a thing.
Working through credible scenarios is a great benefit – learning from people who have had first-hand experience of these situations gives us total trust in their expertise.”
In addition to their own skills and experience, our ability to utilise the skills, resources, knowledge and experience of Humberside Fire and Rescue Service gives HFR Solutions CIC the insight to develop credible scenarios that enable delegates to familiarise themselves with the required procedures for an incident through active role-play.
Adrian concludes, “My own confidence has improved greatly and I have not had one bad report from our delegates - they have all really enjoyed the courses.”
