Rain or shine: delegates embrace hands-on utility excavation training

   26 January 2024     News

Despite the chilly and rainy weather that enveloped Yorkshire yesterday, commitment to excellence prevailed as Wayne Stones, Utilities & Streetworks Trainer, conducted utility excavation training for a group of delegates from Northern Gas Networks. The inclement weather failed to dampen the spirits of both the Trainer and the delegates as they engaged in practical training on our specially constructed trench excavation area on Training Terrace.

The delegates, huddled in their PPE, showcased their determination to enhance their skills in utility excavation, undeterred by the challenging weather conditions. Wayne Stones, with his wealth of expertise, led the group through a comprehensive training session, emphasising safety protocols and best practices in the field.

Training Terrace, a state-of-the-art training facility, is designed for hands-on learning experiences and played a crucial role in facilitating the practical aspects of the training. The dedicated trench excavation area provides a safe yet realistic environment for the delegates to apply their knowledge and hone their skills under the guidance of Wayne.
