British Academy Lays Down Red Carpet To Compliance Training

Bureau Veritas Learning Academy

UK businesses are to get a helping hand in all things compliance with a new learning academy.

With it becoming increasingly difficult for UK businesses to keep up with the volume of changing regulation that they must adhere to, one compliance training firm is launching its learning academy.

Bureau Veritas, which operates in compliance and risk management, has extended its training provision with the new training facility designed to provide businesses with the insight, support and practical learnings needed to ensure workplace best practice.

The Bureau Veritas Learning Academy offers learning solutions, covering health and safety, fire science and management, regulatory, risk management and certification, aimed at key business stakeholders such as duty holders, operatives, management and senior executives.

Customers can choose to opt to receive their training face-to-face, delivered by an expert trainer on site or attend a public course held at Bureau Veritas' UK training centre’s In London, Manchester, Birmingham and Aberdeen.

Alternatively courses can be delivered via a virtual classroom, whereby training is delivered by a live online tutor so that delegates can ask questions and interact in real-time with colleagues in their own and other organisations or through e-learning modules enabling 24/7 access and learning on the go.

Darren McGrath, director of training, for Bureau Veritas, said: “Having delivered bespoke and public training courses on all aspects of compliance and risk management to many global organisations over the years, we are well versed in the complexities and challenges today’s businesses face when it comes to meeting their compliance requirements.

“Just to look at this year alone, new radon regulation comes into effect, the 18th Edition Wiring Regulation is being published in July and there are proposed changes to the Building Regulations to contend with in addition to the transitioning of ISO Standards. It is therefore not surprising that keeping up to date with requirements can be a minefield for businesses.”

This latest move comes as new research has shown that UK businesses are increasingly struggling to keep up to date with compliance regulation with 52% of multinational UK corporations admitting they know that they have unresolved compliance issues.
