We celebrating 40 years in business
CITB & East Midlands Universal Diamond Drilling
As someone who has a focus on the future success of his company, Joe recognises the importance of having professionally trained staff and apprentices working for your business. EMDD have sourced funding from CITB for various training courses and apprenticeships for staff, managing to do so for the whole team at a neutral cost to the business.
EMDD are committed to training employees; from running up to 5 apprenticeships at a time so that newer operatives are brought to the correct industry level, to training courses for existing staff. More experienced skilled workers have also been able to update their qualifications so that they are at a new legal NVQ level, meaning all operatives are compliant and can work safely on site.
Joe sees that by striving for continued training, EMDD are not only ensuring the best future for the company, but will also improve the industry. In particular, he feels that investing in apprentices shows a commitment to workers and also to the construction industry – promoting technical ability and safety awareness as a necessity. To him, CITB funding means that everything runs smoothly, everyone is trained to the correct level and is up skilled where necessary.

Obtain training grants and funding

Up skill and maintain skills of our staff
