Steam specialist’s milestone marked

Leading steam solutions provider, Spirax Sarco, is celebrating three decades of course-accreditation from City & Guilds Group.

Beginning in 1989, the relationship was born out of a decision by The Dairy Trade Federation and City & Guilds to introduce a skills testing scheme for the validation and accreditation of maintenance engineers in the dairy industry. This led to the introduction of a nationally recognised certificate. 

Sally O’Connell, Training Centre manager at Spirax Sarco, said: “At the time, Spirax Sarco was the only authorised provider of the Steam Plant Maintenance training for the scheme. In the 30 years since, we have continued to develop the course and gain accreditation for both our Steam Plant Maintenance and our Steam Boiler Plant Fundamentals (Shell Boiler) courses. By working with City & Guilds, we have been able to create tailored courses that meet our customers’ needs.”
