MG Scotland are a respected provider of construction-related plant operator and health and safety training in Scotland. We bring together 26 years of industry training experience to our clients who operate in a wide variety of sectors including construction, civil engineering, facilities management, utilities, local authorities and oil and gas. We pride ourselves in delivering quality training at competitive prices.
We deliver construction plant operator training, accredited by CPCS or NPORS, from our fully-equipped training centre in Bathgate using equipment from some of the industry’s leading manufacturers such as Volvo, Terex, Manitou and Hyundai.
Our head office and admin centre is based in Bargeddie, Glasgow where candidates can attend to sit their computer-based CITB ConstructionSkills Health, Safety and Environment Test (required for applying for a CSCS/CPCS card). Both our training centre and head office are ideally located between Glasgow and Edinburgh and are easily accessible from across Scotland and the South.
We are also an accredited IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) training centre allowing us to deliver training in the safe and proper use of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) for those required to work safely at height using cherry-pickers, scissor lifts and other specialist powered access platforms.
MG Scotland offer further training in the areas of Driving Skills (4×4 off road vehicles, all-terrain vehicles – ATVs – and Search & Rescue), Groundcare (ride-on mowers, hedge trimmers and pesticides) and Forestry and Arboriculture (chainsaw maintenance, tree felling, pruning and thinning), accredited by NPORS.
Short duration in-house courses are also available, such as abrasive wheels, asbestos awareness, manual handling and safety harness training, ideal for groups looking to enhance their knowledge and understanding of key health & safety topics.
