Vocational Training & Qualifications

In May 2021, an idea became reality; VTraQ | Vocational Training & Qualifications.

By utilising our professional expertise in the electrical, engineering & manufacturing sectors, we deliver basic electrical skills training courses.

We train people to carry out basic electrical tasks, such as; safe isolation of machinery, resetting motor overload trips, basic electrical maintenance, fault finding, & component replacement, ensuring safe working practices are followed at all times.

We are currently developing a range of hazardous area training modules that aim to support the development of qualified people working in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Electrical Engineering

Our Director, Alan Pennock; has a passion for developing training course content which is informative, practical & enjoyable.

Alan is a qualified Maintenance Electrician, with over 40 years experience working in industry. His experience includes; installation, testing & commissioning of automated machinery; inspection, maintenance & fault finding of electrical control systems; inspection & maintenance of electrical systems in hazardous areas (potentially explosive atmospheres).

Training & Assessment

In 2013, Alan qualified as an Approved CompEx Assessor, & was involved in assessing the competence of qualified electricians & instrument technicians, working in potentially explosive atmospheres.

Alan then completed a recognised training qualification and moved onto training electrical engineering apprentices, delivering practical training at level 2 & 3. The standard of work produced by his apprentices was always completed to a ‘high’ standard.

Approved CompEx Assessor

An opportunity to return to CompEx in 2022.

In addition to delivering onsite basic electrical skills training courses for non-electrical people, Alan works as a part-time Approved CompEx Assessor, supporting a local Training Provider in Teesside.

Alan’s job role involves assessing the competence of qualified electricians & instrument technicians working in hazardous areas that may contain potentially explosive atmospheres.
