- Mercury Security, Tavcom, training centre
Tavcom Training and Technical Consultancy has joined forces with Mercury Security & Facilities Management Ltd to launch a brand new technical training facility at the company’s modern headquarters Mercury House, based in Lisburn, Co Antrim.
At the new Lisburn Centre – which is being designed to mirror Tavcom’s ‘state of the art’ workshops and lecture rooms at its own premises in Hampshire – specialist tutors will eventually deliver Tavcom’s full range of security systems courses. A limited programme commences shortly with a 1 day ‘Operational Requirement’ courses which are available on November 6th, 7th and 8th,2012.
For Tavcom’s Managing Director Mike Tennent this pioneering joint venture is the realisation of a long held ambition. “During the past 18 years Tavcom has forged strong links with a wide range of organizations, both public and private, throughout Northern and Southern Ireland” said Mike “and every year we welcome large numbers of Irish delegates to our Training Centre in Bishop’s Waltham.
It has always been my wish to help them minimize the time and cost of travel by establishing world class training facilities on their side of the Irish Sea. I am delighted to have been able to bring this about by forming a very constructive partnership with Mercury Security – a company which shares our vision and our values”.
Tavcom and Mercury are also working together to present a ‘Talk and Test’ Conference at the La Mon Hotel and Country Club in Castlereagh, near Belfast, on March 7th, 2013. The day will feature a number of exciting practical tests and exercises and will be supported by a number of expert speakers from across the security industry.
Francis William Cullen Director stated “we are thrilled that Tavcom have chosen Mercury Security based in Lisburn, Co Antrim as the location to open their first technical training and consultancy division in Ireland, this is great news for the installation community and those who require technical training who in the past have had to travel to Tavcom Headquarters in England.
Now our existing clients and future clients have got this excellent facility right on their doorstep, we will be providing many opportunities for job creation in all sectors of the security industry, for example our youth can now choose a career in the installation industry and not incur the costs of traveling abroad to get the required training and qualifications”
