HSS Training, the specialist training division of HSS Hire, the UK’s award-winning tool and equipment hire company, has announced it will be expanding operations to now also offer training courses throughout Ireland.

The announcement comes just days after HSS confirmed the acquisition of the Hydrex Training business, adding specific rail and plant training capabilities to their portfolio.

HSS Training offers over 100 industry-recognised technical and safety courses, delivered in more than 20 locations around the UK by a team of trainers that are expert in their field. For the past 10 years, they have been dedicated to enhancing and developing the skills, knowledge and safety of delegates all around the country and helping organisations of all sizes aspire to the highest levels of health and safety. Now, they will be taking that expertise to delegates in the Republic of Ireland too.

HSS Training will deliver courses in Ireland through a network of purpose built ‘centres of excellence’ including Dublin, Cork, Limerick and Galway as well as Belfast in Northern Ireland. Courses will also be offered at customer locations.

Mark Winfield, HSS Training Director, explains: “Over the past 18 months or so, we’ve been really concentrated on growing the training part of the HSS group. By investing in new training centres, in new courses and in our fantastic team of trainers, we’ve enhanced our reputation as a leading provider of health & safety and technical training courses.

“I’m delighted that we can now extend our training provision into Ireland. We’ll be offering the same broad curriculum of courses that we do in the UK and will also be able to deliver training in bespoke areas too. We now have a network of locations throughout Ireland and training can also be offered onsite at the customer’s location if they prefer”.
