EPC-UK Training

At EPC-UK we take a committed, highly focussed approach to supporting the industry we work within, by providing training courses to develop different sector specialisms and personnel capabilities. From onsite training, to update and awareness courses, our programmes are open to all industry professionals, not just our own company’s employees.

Market Leadership and Expertise

Our training proficiencies are unrivalled. From blast design and environmental control, to on-site safety; we offer market leading, modular training courses with the scope to be tailored to individual company requirements. Utilising the latest explosives technology, combined with one of the strongest skillsets in the sector, EPC-UK can provide some of the most highly regarded training and assessment services in the industry.

On-Site Training

No other UK organisation can equal the breadth of support we offer or compete with our collaborative contribution to ongoing training and industry advancement.  The courses we’ve devised serve to improve knowledge and good on-site practice, and concentrate on developing extensive, practical experience within situations where strong focus on day-to-day operations is vital.

Update and Awareness Courses

We can arrange specific courses to ensure personnel, including planners, environmental officers and production operatives are fully trained in current practice. This type of essential training is particularly valuable for people who encounter other employees using explosives in the working environment.

By adopting a ‘one-stop’ training approach, we can cover specific course requirements on most blasting related topics, including quarrying, mining, tunnelling, civil engineering, demolition, dimension stone blasting and film/TV special effects.

Bespoke and modular courses are available in:

Each course is specifically designed to combine periods of formal teaching with extensive application experience and case studies.
