Technical Services staff pass turfcare exams

A number of staff from synthetic sports turf specialists Technical Surfaces recently celebrated passing their Level 2 NVQ in Sport and Play Surfaces.

The qualification was launched in 2008 by the Sports and Play Construction Association (SAPCA) in partnership with SkillsActive, EdExcel and South Birmingham College.

Technical Services was the first company to enrol on the training programme in 2009.

Technical director Jonathan Gunn said:  "We have since worked in close partnership with South Birmingham College to ensure the NVQ continues to meet the needs of our industry.

"We are please to announce that our input and knowledge has actually influenced changes to the qualification of the framework. 

"Re-shaping the blueprint and setting the standard for training throughout our industry is an achievement of which we are immensely proud, both for ourselves and for the future growth and development of the synthetic sports surface industry."

He added:  "Our in-house training programme and years of industry experience give our technicians a good grounding in the particulars of maintenance, and their knowledge and expertise is now supported with a qualification that gives them transferable skills and opportunities for advancement."
