Expert instructors from Stockton could soon be bringing home a national title for their high quality delivery of welding training.
NETA Training Group has been named among the finalists for Best Training Provider in The Welding World Awards 2018.
The team will now attend a glittering awards ceremony this April, hosted by TV presenter Eamonn Holmes OBE, where the final winners will be announced.
NETA’s managing director Phil Blewitt said: “We are delighted to have been selected as finalists for this prestigious award.
“This nomination is testimony to the hard work and dedication of NETA’s training and support staff and to our ongoing commitment in developing safe, skilled and technically competent welders for industry.”
With a 40-year history on Teesside, NETA Training delivers a wide range of engineering technical training to industrial sectors across the UK and internationally.
Its longstanding commitment to meet the current and future needs of industry employers saw the firm recently make a further £75,000 investment into the expansion of its welding facilities at its base off Portrack Lane.
With 10 additional welding bays, kitted out with the latest high tech welding equipment, NETA Training is now able to offer an increased availability to employers looking to train, test and certify their welders to recognised industry standards.
The World Welding Awards are impartial, independent awards that are open to any company operating in the welding industry. The aim is to find those that are among the best at what they do.
An online vote saw NETA Training placed among the top 20 who were invited to present to a panel of judges earlier this month.
With the organisation now named a Welding World Awards Finalist, NETA’s commercial training manager Graham Middleditch said: “Receiving the nomination in the first instance was very humbling as it is a reflection of what our customers think of our welding facility and team.
“To be selected as a finalist following our presentation is fantastic news, and for me, is confirmation of what NETA has been doing since 1975, delivering quality training that gives people the real skills needed for real jobs.”
