GMCT recently launched a proactive initiative for new recruits into the world of operated plant for construction sites across the North West.

Working closely with Hopwood Hall College, GMCT organised a new intensive dedicated Operators Plant Training Course combining theory and hands-on machine training for potential new recruits to the industry. These new operators get working on leading brands including Takeuchi excavators as well as telehandlers and dumpers.

The first fully funded training course over 5 weeks is nearing completion with trainees well on their way. The recruits will complete the course and final stages in the next few weeks with training by on site NVQ assessments to achieve their Blue CPCS cards on all three pieces of plant.

GMCT have worked closely with leading regional construction companies as potential employers; with a meet-the-employer morning to take a close look at the new trainees. Leading construction firms: Mayo Civil Engineering Rochdale, PLP Construction Rochdale, PP O’Connor, Westbourne Civil Engineering have all got involved.

“Many thanks to everyone on making this happen. I’m sure you will agree it is an excellent example of co-operation between likeminded individuals and organisation to achieve a much-needed training provision in the Borough of Rochdale and Greater Manchester”

All plant machinery takes place at GMCT’s dedicated training centre in Middleton where trainees get a chance for real machine action. The trainees get intensive 5-week Health and safety units, CSCS test for sites, CPCS category for the Ride on Roller, Forward tipping dumper and 360-degree excavators – all put through their paces on leading equipment brands.

The Training Programme is on-going and GMCT are already recruiting for the next training intake scheduled for the 17th June.  

“We are already receiving lots of applications from social media, clients etc, but if you feel any other organisations could benefit, or would be interested, then please get in touch” Brad Daniel
