Derby Business Invests in Online Technology

Develop TrainingDerby based Develop Training, the UK’s leading technical training provider, announces significant investment in online technology as the company continues to evolve to meet the future needs of its customers.

2013 will see the Ascot Drive located company launch several exciting online innovations to help customers improve work place effectiveness through quality training and development. Develop Training will also undertake a major re-branding exercise later this year which includes the creation of Develops first Trades and Energy Skills Centre based in Derby.

An interactive website launches in July 2013 which promises to be a ‘knowledge hub’ for Utilities and Facilities Management technical training. A key feature will be its capability to notify visitors of important changes in legislation and the latest industry trends.

Rod Tompsett, Executive Chairman of Develop Training said: “We are always looking to the future and actively listening to our customers to ensure we provide innovative solutions to satisfy their needs. Whilst we’ve always been online, this advancement in new technology will ensure we continue to offer the very best training solutions and service for years to come.

“There are some really exciting developments to come later this year. I am particularly excited about the new website, especially the feature that notifies customers about legislation changes and trends in their sector. This responds directly to feedback from customers who tell us that having a one-stop-stop for this type of information would be really useful to help manage their training needs.”

The award-winning company offers specialised technical training across sectors including utility, facilities management and water. Employing 93 people in Derby, it offers 1000 technical training courses and qualifications, hosting 75,000 training days per year from its five UK locations.
