Leading training company goes national

Integra Environmental, the health, safety and environmental consultancy arm of the University of Sunderland, is looking to develop a national market for its training programmes, after establishing a reputation for outstanding results within the North-East of England.

PICTURE CAPTION: L-R NEBOSH Diploma distinction students, Stephen Taylor, health and safety officer Derek Parnaby Cyclones; John Feltoe, senior environmental health officer, City of Sunderland, Andy Bull, health and safety officer, GNER.

In June last year, Integra became the only training centre in the world to achieve a 100 per cent pass rate for the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) Certificate and Diploma Part 1 examinations.

Now Integra has expanded its range of training to include NEBOSH, Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA) courses, which are available as block and supported distance learning programmes. A link-up with a local hotel will enable candidates from outside the region to take advantage of residential training packages.

Integra managing director Mike Harris says: “We have worked hard to establish a good track record in the North-East and have helped our students to achieve consistently excellent results. The time is now right to make our training products available beyond the region.”

Integra has trained candidates from a wide range of organisations, including GNER, English Heritage and Sir Robert McAlpine. More information about Integra Environmental is available at http://www.integra-e.co.uk or by calling 0191 515 2666.
