Tavcom opens new northern training centre

Located in Shipley, West Yorkshire, Tavcom Training has opened up a new training centre for security professionals in partnership with CrossConnect Training. The company is also celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

TavcomTraining-North-20The new centre allows Tavcom to host courses and provide “internationally recognised” training at two facilities in the UK – Hampshire and West Yorkshire. Alongside a growing portfolio of online interactive courses, the company believes it can now better meet the growing demand for training provision in the sector. The new centre is designed to be easy to access for professionals from northern regions, such as Manchester, Liverpool, Warrington, Leeds, Harrogate and Middlesbrough, amongst others.

Managing Director of the Link International Group, David Gill, said: “This significant investment and expansion of Tavcom is in response to unprecedented demand for our accredited courses, by installers the length and breadth of England. This important new centre replicates the class-leading facilities at our facility in Hampshire that has established Tavcom as the premier provider of technical security training in the UK, for more than 25 years.”
