LANTRA Awards is a nationally recognised awarding body approved to develop and accredit qualifications such as NVQ/SVQ and VRQ. They also provide national qualifications in a range of subject areas, as well as technical awards and customised provision to accredit in-house training.

Ian Mitchell, a senior trainer with Cutting Edge Training said:

"We are a City and Guilds NVQ training centre, NPTC assessors, BAGMA installation trainers and now with this latest accreditation, a LANTRA Awards centre. The team here have worked incredibly hard to prepare and deliver relevant and pertinent training to the grounds care industry.

"Although we are a division of Ransomes Jacobsen, we can deliver training and certification for operators and technicians on equipment from any manufacturer. In fact, a high percentage of our training is with organisations that don’t use equipment manufactured in Ipswich.

"We are delighted with this latest recognition which will help us further to deliver the provision of specialised, sector specific training that meets the needs of employers and of learners."
