Plant Training

Our Plant Operator courses offer both training and testing from fully accredited and experienced instructors. We offer courses for people of all levels, from operators with little or no experience to experienced and fully competent operators. So whether you need a course to help you get started in a new career in construction or warehousing or whether you need to simply update your operator’s work card, at SB Skills Solutions Ltd we have the right course for you.

As all of our courses are designed with the individual in mind we are able to offer flexibility within them, such as working at your own pace, to make sure we give you or your employees the best possible opportunity of passing first time.
