New Holland launch operator training initiative
In recognition of the need for trainee construction plant operators to benefit from using the latest mobile plant, New Holland Construction, together with their Lincolnshire dealer, Platts Harris, have entered into an agreement with Rand Training for the supply of a substantial number of machines.
New Holland Construction and Rand Training have signed a partnership agreement signalling a long-term investment in construction industry training.?Under the agreement, New Holland will provide Rand Training with brand new machines, worth £300,000, which will be replaced every six months.?The first five have recently been delivered and comprise E215 and E135SR excavators, two LB110B backhoe loaders and a LM1345 telehandler.
Handing over the keys to the machines, Graham Cannon, executive sales director for Platts Harris, said: ‘To make the construction industry a safer working environment, the importance of the CITB CPCS scheme cannot be over-emphasized.?With this agreement, New Holland have shown their commitment to supporting safe operating practices and site safety awareness.?We are pleased to be working with such a professional organization as Rand Training and making our contribution to providing the industry with operators who have successfully completed the CPCS training and other NVQ courses.’
With the handover of the first batch of machines, Dan Allen, general manager of Rand Training, said: ‘It is important for the trainees that they gain experience on equipment that is the most up to date available. New Holland and their dealer, Platts Harris, through this partnering initiative, make this possible.?Not only do our students benefit from being able to use new equipment, but Rand Training also benefit from the ready access to service support, technical advice and other services as required.’
Rand Training, part of the Lincolnshire-based Rand Group of construction companies, provide various training programmes for up to 2,000 people each year at their modern, purpose-built facilities in almost 5ha of training grounds.?
