Pretium Training Ltd was formed with a very simple but important motive:
“To provide quality, relevant, realistic training at a reasonable cost”.
We achieve this by drawing on many years’ industry experience to offer a full range of workplace courses in which scenario and practical exercises form the basis of our teaching, enabling students to put their training into the context of their own particular employment environments. The Pretium Training Ltd Management Team is supported by approved associate trainers who can demonstrate sector competency which ensures currency and best practice at all times.
Training is carried out at our own training centre in Eastbourne, East Sussex, or alternatively can be delivered at the client’s preferred location.
All materials, equipment and training aids used are of the highest standard and are being continually developed to ensure they not only meet, but exceed, the required standards by the awarding bodies.
Pretium Training deliver accredited, certificated training through the relevant awarding bodies, and bespoke course requirements will always be considered.
We are currently working towards ISO 9001/14001.
