The LEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) is launching a new one-day training course designed to offer staff with little or no technical expertise an introduction to the overhead lifting sector. Led by the LEEA’s team of specialist trainers, the Lifing Equipment Familiarization Seminar will provide attendees with an overview of commonly used lifting equipment and accessories, and an outline of relevant UK legislation and regulations.
Open to all employees of LEEA member companies, the new course is ideally suited to staff working in administrative roles who would benefit from a better understanding of the products and services they deal with. For the more technically oriented, the course may also serve as the first step towards a long-term career in the test, examination and maintenance of overhead lifting equipment, via the LEEA’s industry-recognized Diploma training and qualification program.
The new Lifting Equipment Familiarization Seminar can be held at the LEEA’s purpose-designed training centre in Huntingdon, or any suitable premises worldwide. The association’s facilities incorporate a wide range of operational lifting equipment in a modern workshop environment, alongside dedicated classroom space kitted out with the latest AV technology. Full details of the new course will be available at the LEEA’s dedicated trade show, LiftEx 2013 (USN Bolton Arena – November 14). Alternatively, contact the LEEA direct on +44 (0)1480 432801, or via email:firstname.lastname@example.org. In addition, an introductory video can be viewed on the LEEA’s YouTube channel (search for ‘LEEAInt’).
