New courses included in training calendar

Eastwood Park’s new training calendar for April 2020-March 2021 has been published, with details of its specialist engineering and estates and facilities management courses.

The training establishment said: “Following a busy 2019 celebrating 50 years of training delivery, 2020 looks to be just as eventful, with several new courses, and significant improvement to accommodation and general facilities coming, including a new gym.”

New this year is a ‘Safe management of healthcare waste’ course, which focuses on the HTM 07-01 guidelines. It not only highlights the environmental and health benefits of appropriate waste management, but also the potential cost savings. Adding to Eastwood Park’s mechanical portfolio is a new a pressure systems introductory course – ‘Pressure systems hazards & responsibilities’, following the success of its Skilled and Authorised Person training, and a new ‘Technical boilerhouse risk assessment’ course.

2020 will also see the return of Eastwood Park’s ‘Hospital engineering apprentice summer school’, which it says ‘provides apprentices with a greater appreciation of the HTMs and compliance through practical, technical sessions with expert trainers’. The training centre is a supporting provider on the Register of Approved Training Providers (RoATP).

With the ‘facelift’ in the main house now complete, there is a ‘refreshed’ restaurant and dining service, refurbished bedrooms ‘with a stylish, contemporary design’, and an updated bar, lounge, and new games room.

Eastwood Park added: “With essential training in everything from core hospital engineering disciplines, to tailored courses for the commercial sector, and on estates and facilities management and decontamination, we deliver courses to meet the latest safety regulations and HTM guidelines.”
