Photo August 21st 2019 - Work continues on the extension and scaffolding has been erected around our existing building. The windows and roof soffits are being painted, and the guttering and downpipes replaced, to match the extension. Anthracite grey will replace our mid 90s blue color scheme!

The training center is an extension to our York based UK head office which was originally completed in 1995. Over the years the number of staff we employ has gradually expanded to the point where we no longer have room for a training facility. As a short term measure we have been holding our courses in the offices of our next door neighbor the Diocese of York. However, the long term solution was to extend our offices and this is now firmly underway. Unfortunately we have lost the use of our car park for the duration of the build. As this would have been an inconvenience for clients, we have moved our courses to a local hotel until the training center is finished.

On completion the training center will include a large training room that can be split into two separate rooms for the majority of courses, plus a breakout area for lunch and refreshments. There will also be a fully equipped conference room for private sessions with individual clients. 

Practical completion for the build is scheduled for the 20th December. After allowing for the fit out of the breakout area, and the arrival of furniture, computers and AV equipment, we are expecting to be ready to bring our training courses back onsite by the beginning of March 2020.

Training courses covering the use of Coach Manager, our Tour Booking System and our Vehicle Maintenance System are included as standard with our software subscription and software support agreements. The completion of the training center will allow us to offer an enhanced selection of courses covering not just the day-to-day use of our software, but also a number of other associated areas.
