Clearwater opens Technical Training AcademyRedditch-based Clearwater Group Ltd (www.clearwater.eu.com) — a leading supplier of water treatment, hygiene and air solutions — opened a ‘state of the art’ Technical Training Academy last month to train apprentices, new recruits and existing employees in the latest practices and technology in its field.

A recent survey conducted by the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management showed that employers are seeing a higher turnover of staff, and 70% of them say that the skills shortage has reduced their ability to finish projects.

Clearwater believes that, in order to tackle this issue, more training needs to be available — not only to those looking to break into the industry but also to current employees.

The Clearwater Technical Training Academy represents a significant investment, and the company expects 400 employees to benefit from the new facility this year.

It offers courses covering the cleaning and disinfection of water systems, cooling-tower water treatment and remedial work, chemical dosing systems, water treatment plant, air-handling units, ductwork and kitchen extraction systems.

There will also be courses on asbestos awareness, health and safety, and Legionella testing. Many of these courses are City & Guilds-accredited.

Academy manager Paul Englefield said: “We’re very excited to open the doors on this facility, which is equipped with three cooling towers, ventilation systems, domestic water systems, and industrial water treatment equipment.

“Trainees get to practice in a safe and clean environment, preparing them for work that can sometimes take place in less comfortable conditions.

“The opportunity to learn new skills will ensure that we will continue to have well-trained and competent teams offering a first-class service to all our customers.”
