National construction industry training specialist DTL (Develop Training Ltd) has won a major new contract with Hanson UK.

DTL, which has a training centre in Linlithgow, will provide electrical equipment training for more than 1000 employees of Hanson – a leading supplier of heavy building materials to the construction industry.

A Hanson spokesman said: “The new contract comes after Hanson identified the need to enhance safe working practices on the repair, maintenance and management of high and low voltage electrical equipment.

“DTL will provide employees with bespoke courses both at Hanson sites and its own sites, which include Linlithgow.”

The rolling programme will run over 12 months, with 19 courses varying from entry level, including circuit breakers, electrical re-setting, safe system function testing, light fitting, lamp training and safe isolation, to formal C and G qualifications including authorised person high voltage.
