Technical Training

Share on:

Competence is key to operating safely and sustainably. Developing technically capable staff is essential of maintaining regulatory compliance and effective organisational processes.

Maintaining a high level of staff awareness and technical competency within an organisation can significantly reduce the risk of non-compliance with current legislation and exposure to overall business liability and risks. Key staff not only need good awareness of relevant operational issues but may well need a specific technical ability to underpin that awareness and perform their duties effectively, to achieve improvements in performance.  

We support our clients by identifying their competence requirements and providing a range of training and competence-building tools for individuals at all levels of the workforce. This includes both the development and delivery of in-house specialist courses for a wide range of topics, and the provision of industry accredited public training courses at venues across the UK throughout the year.


In-house bespoke technical training:

GHD works closely with clients to create bespoke technical training programmes tailored to suit their individual business needs and the commercial priorities and value drivers for their business. This partnered approach enables us to provide a level of training that can be phased and rolled-out in a manner that precisely fits our client’s requirements and available budget.

  • asset management
  • lean learning/six sigma
