Why Lyon Training?
The Lyon Equipment Work & Rescue Training Centre delivers authoritative instruction and certification for work and rescue at height and in difficult to access places. Customers come from all sectors involving work at height including, industrial rope access, utilities, industry, rescue and the emergency services.
Our courses are delivered in accordance with BS 8454:2006 Code of practice for the delivery of training and education for work at height and rescue. Many have been audited and approved by external organisations such as ROSPA, Qualifications Network and Arqiva.
Whatever your requirements for work at height or rescue, we can provide training to meet your needs. In addition to our ‘standard’ courses we also offer bespoke training designed specifically around our customer’s needs.
