Training

We have a dedicated training division that's conveniently based at our Head Office in Motherwell and operates under the prestigious IPAF and PASMA banners.

Safety training is increasingly important. It's invaluable - especially in complying with ever-more stringent regulations. It's essential that personnel at all levels can ensure their own and others safety at work.

For years, we've placed a high priority on safety among our own staff. It's led to us developing a comprehensive range of interactive training courses (all with full certification upon completion) and facilities that are now available to our customers.

A list of our courses is given below. We can also offer special deals for block bookings, for more details, or to make a booking, please contact us on 08700 508060 or hirehub@martinplanthire.co.uk.
