EAS team up with Sterling Training and Assessment
Sterling Training and Assessment Services was formed in 1998 to fill a much needed gap in the gas skills arena, the main aim to offer the very best experience for customers in an ever changing industry, through many years of growth and investment Sterling have continually expanded offering new training courses and services.
EAS has now teamed up with Sterling to cover training for Gas Pathways so our customers do not have to travel as much as previous to achieve their end goal. We can now cover the whole of Northamtponshire and further afield ensuring costs are reduced along with time lost from off the job training. Another reason is to ensure we raise the standards of training and assessments. We have seen to many 'training and assessment' centers basically giving anyone a Gas ticket and we feel this is no good for the industry or the end consumer. So we plan to do it a little bit different but the end outcome will give you the confidence you are fully competent to carry out Gas works.
So how will it work?
From whatever background you are, whether your a Level 2 plumber or a beginner we at EAS will train you at our Northampton center to the highest standard. After this training has been concluded we then send you to Sterling for assessment. As we are two separate centers we feel that this is as true to the real world as you'll get it...... every house is different right? On completion of the assessments and when you've passed you can really be confidant with your workmanship.
EAS Mechanical wins Gold
March 2017 ended a fantastic month for EAS. After various audits which all where passed we found out we had been nominated for the Apprenticeships 4 England award for small provider. Aknowledging the excellent delivery that EAS has been giving for the last 3 years the awards are nominated and voted by others delivering apprenticeships.
Never thinking that we would win coming up against 4 others in the catergory who have been operating a few more years than us so it was a pleasent surprise when we did.
Eamon Wilson MD of EAS said "Winning this award is an fantastic achievement for all involved with EAS. With the centre only being 2 years old and to be recognised as a lead provider is extremely pleasing not only for me but for my staff who work extremely hard across the board to do things right. This award will also give confidence to companies who maybe thinking of joining EAS' journey so far"
