Environment Agency Staff Celebrate Completion of 15 Week Outboard Motor Maitenance Course at ERC

12th May 2006 3:20pm - Return to press releases


Five members of staff from the Environment Agency have recently been awarded certificates for completing a 15-week course in Outboard Motor Maintenance at the Carnaby site of East Riding College.


Michael Farline, course tutor, had previously been approached by an Environment Agency officer to see if it would be possible for the College to make a tailor-made course for their staff on Outboard Motor Maintenance.


A condensed course was put together and five members of Environment Agency staff attended two hours a week for 15 weeks.


Michael Farline, course tutor said "This was a really enjoyable course to teach. It was really great for the College to establish links with the Environment Agency and do our little part in helping them to provide their excellent service".


Phil Young, the Environment Agency's team leader for the East Riding said: "It was great to have a course tailor-made for us and the college worked hard to fulfil our brief. We are now certain of the action we need to take and feel confident that, should the worst happen at sea, we are properly equipped to deal with it."


The College offers opportunities to customise courses for businesses who wish to bring groups of individuals to the College. We also offer mainstream and part-time programmes for anyone who is interested in training.
