From sole trader to trade trainer!


  Posted by: electime      13th June 2018

Logic Certification is pleased to welcome Essex Trade Training to the LCL family. The centre has been set-up by enterprising gas and electrical engineer, Micky Kline, and training is delivered by tradespeople with real experience.

Based in Colchester, Essex Trade Training currently offers training for gas engineers, but aims to grow to suit learners in a range of different trades in the future. The centre’s founder backs up his impressive track-record in the industry with seven years’ experience working as a trainer and assessor alongside his other businesses.

The centre, which is currently staffed by Micky and trainers with similar professional backgrounds, is concentrating on Gas ACS, assessments and refresher training, but there are plans to move into other areas.

Micky says: “Right now I’m concentrating on qualified gas engineers and ACS, but I could see us moving into training new blood with LCL’s Managed Learning Program later down the line.  The next step will be Electrics. I’m planning to offer the new 18th Edition Wiring Regulations qualification from later this summer. Again, the focus would be on tradespeople training tradespeople, after all, there’s nothing like learning from someone who works directly in the field, is there?’

LCL’s External Verifier and Technical Specialist, Andrew Jones, guided Micky through the technical approval process and has been impressed with his drive and enthusiasm, he said: “It has been an absolute pleasure supporting Micky in obtaining his Logic Certification approval; it is massive undertaking to develop a new training and assessment business.

“On behalf of LCL, I would like to wish Micky every success in his new venture and I look forward to providing further support as he develops his business in the future.”

“LCL were great; they were really flexible, on hand whenever I needed guidance but they didn’t put pressure on me, so I felt in control”, Micky concluded.
