We approach the “Tattie Holidays” – in bygone times the period where everyone, even school kids, mucked in to get the potatoes lifted. I doubt there’s much of that being done manually these days, other than in home gardens / small plots, and, while some may bemoan the intrusion of technology into everyday life, such progress really is key to a brighter future for all.

Despite that, one venerable technology which is still in use today (and is the only choice for some organisations for urgent document transfer) is fax! With the prevalence and versatility of e-mail, its grainy quality, slow speed, and generally black & white content feel so out of place in our time. However, while e-mail may be faster, and can send much larger amounts of data, there’s not always a guarantee it’s been received ... which is why urgent & critical e-mails should either have a 'Please notify us by return that this has been received' line, or should be followed up with a call to ensure they have arrived and been read!

In much the same way, your certificate, card, or other visible endorsement at the end of a training course, is your proof that you’ve attended / passed said course. It is your ticket to a brighter future as every course passed increases your value to your employer, or future employer!

This month’s courses are now available on our website (http://www.helcattraining.com/calendar/2016-10/) and available in a downloadable PDF (http://www.helcattraining.com/download/training_calendars/HelCat-Training-Calendar.pdf) for easy reference. As always, if you see something you or a staff member should attend then please get in touch with Angela on 01847 894560 or angela@helcattraining.com, likewise if you would like more information, or would like us to consider running other courses, then give her a call or drop her an email.

In October we’re offering Business Administration VQs and Leadership & Management VQs, plus CHAS & ISO 9001 Accreditation Consultancy as needed, and are able to run CITB CSCS / CPCS / ECS / JIB / SJIB Health, Safety & Environment Tests, NPORS / CPCS Dumper / Excavator / Forklift / MEWP / Roller & Telehandler courses at short notice if required.

If you work in the construction environment, have worked offshore, or know someone who worked offshore and has been made redundant, then get in touch as we may be able to assist with funding towards the payment of our training courses.

We have rooms of various sizes, and of high-standard, which are available for delivering training, hosting meetings as well as being made available to book corporate events in. Get in touch if you wish to view our facilities or discuss further.

Also, a reminder that we offer an out-of-hours training service should our usual hours not suit your requirements, subject to availability.

Finally, given this month's intro, an interesting fact for those who weren’t aware... the inventor of the fax was an Alexander Bain who was born in non-other than Watten in 1811 - he also invented the electric clock!
