OpenView Security Solutions, the UK’S largest privately owned independent security company and a leading national supplier of fire, electrical and mechanical services, has opened a new, purpose-built technical Training Academy at its Romford-based head office.  This new facility will be used by OpenView to cross train engineers and extend its existing apprenticeship programme.  It will also enable the company to retrain ex police and services personnel, giving them the required industry skills.

According to Mark Ingleson, Group Managing Director at OpenView Group:  “The industry is experiencing a major shortage in the number of engineers with the skills to deliver high quality engineering and compliance testing services.  With over 300 field operatives, OpenView has made a significant investment in this new technical training facility which will enable us to gear up to handle the largest contracts whilst demonstrating our commitment to building the industry.”

OpenView’s new Training Academy provides a classroom environment where compliance testing, installation and support skills can be taught via and practical, hands-on sessions for a comprehensive range of electrical, fire and CCTV products.  It will also be used to further enhance ‘soft’ skills such as customer communications.
