Ben will complete a two year, work based, Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship, training and instruction taking place while working on drainage tasks. The structure of the formal training is built on a suite of specialist training courses that have been externally Accredited and Certified by the Institute of Training & Occupational learning.

On completion of the learning modules, Ben will have earned nationally recognised Level 3 ITOL Qualification and will be fully qualified to carry out

High Pressure Water Jetting • CCTV Drainage Surveys • Drain and Sewer Lining • Excavations • Electronic Mechanical Cleaning • Confined Space Work • Sewer survey • Sewer maintenance • Emergency drainage Repair

Martin Anderson says “We are delighted to have taken on our first apprentice. Ben showed great enthusiasm for our skilled industry with a keen interest in the new state of the art technologies that we will continue to invest in. Ben had been looking to find an apprenticeship scheme that was specialist to drainage but had not been able to find the right balance between class based and practical hands-on training. Our work based scheme ticked all the right boxes for Ben and I look forward to him going from strength to strength”.
