Olive Safety is delighted to announce that it has expanded its operations and has opened a new training and development centre beside the Red Cow. At 14,500 sq. feet, it has become the biggest training centre in Ireland. With the expansion has come longer opening hours meaning, early morning and late evening classes to facilitate our customers busy schedules, 6 days a week. The expansion has also allowed us the opportunity to offer more blended learning via classroom and through E-Learning. Our aspirations are simple: continue to grow with technology and innovate to offer our customers the best training solutions.
Blended learning combines the advantages of classroom training, group interaction, the “human touch” etc. with the advantages of digital training, time and money savings, self paced learning and the delivery of a consistent message. Bigger and better facilitated space enables us to offer this approach extensively and to give our customers the best opportunity of training they require. This move allows for more facilities for individuals to take digital training sessions and also space for practical assessments so learners can demonstrate their understanding and knowledge.
As part of this blended learning approach, we are offering a broad range of courses for those working in plant/machinery/logistics. Some of our courses that run weekly include, Forklift, MEWP, Confined Space (both day and evening classes available). Additionally, 3 novice courses which can be completed in 5 days include Counterbalance, Reach and Power Pallet Trucks. All of the mentioned courses include refresher courses daily.
Kevin Doyle, Director of Olive Safety has said “The expansion offers our customers more flexibility around taking courses that fit in with their lifestyle and busy schedules. Learners can take digital courses at our premises or at home in just an hour and take practical exams at our new centre. It is a wonderful opportunity for individuals to come up to date with all of their training needs, in a manner that suits them”
