Training Certificate Expiry Service

To support members the training team have been sending letters monthly to remind members of up and coming training certificate expiries for their staff (operatives, supervisors, contract managers).

The training team has developed a new system whereby emails will be automatically generated and sent to the members’ training contact with a report attached.

The report will include the names of the staff and when their training certificate expires, along with information on scheduled training courses at all ARCA centres over the next two months. This updated communication service began this month.

The ARCA team are here to support you so, call us on 01283 505777 or click here to book on a training course.
