TMS and City of Bath College have launched a new joint training initiative for 2010.
This will see the City of Bath College's very popular Highways Open Tech distance learning courses being delivered and taught in modular form by TMS, as an expansion to their current traffic management and road safety training courses portfolio.
The initiative will concentrate on Highways Design and Transport Planning and Traffic Management topics. The courses will lead to BTEC Certificates of Achievement for students through completion of a series of assignments.
This can be achieved by undertaking further Highway and Transportation courses from the TMS and City of Bath College training programme.
Phil Cook, Director at TMS, said "This is an important new initiative to help tackle the learning and skills gap in the highways and transportation sector. TMS see the development and provision of high quality training with qualifications and competency assessments as very important to the future of the industry. We are very pleased to be working with an established and well respected academic institution on this initiative".
The first BTEC training session was launched on Monday 8th March 2010 (see photo above)
