Refurbished York training centre and fully to scale ‘artificial street’ unveiled

Develop Training, which provides compliance, technical, and safety training, has officially re-opened its York training centre alongside its new fully to-scale artificial JETSET (Joint Emergency Training Set) street.

The centre, which has undergone a £400,000 ‘full refurbishment’, is now set to provide training in tandem with the purpose-built street, named Training Terrace in a recent public competition, that Develop has recently constructed next door. The opening, on 24 May, involved a day of celebrations marked by an official ribbon-cutting ceremony. Guests were also given tours of the  newly refurbished facilities and Training Terrace.

The business explains that ‘Training Terrace looks and appears as a regular street would, consisting of houses, apartments, and a café’, but with each area specifically designed for training, Develop can use the new facility to deliver courses in emergency response to gas incidents, as well as excavation safety, cable avoidance, street lighting, drains, sewer jetting, and confined spaces entry.

John Kerr, MD at Develop, said: “This new state-of-the-art facility will give us a fantastic base from which t deliver essential and enhanced training to businesses in North Yorkshire and beyond. We’re thrilled to unveil a centre that will work in tandem with Training Terrace, as this new street provides an innovative facility that we’re proud to operate from.”

The centre has had several updates to include two fixed-learning classrooms, a hybrid centre catering for alternative energies, two HV workshops, and an LV workshop. The workshops will offer a number of Develop’s courses, including those relevant to confined spaces, gas distribution, health and safety, healthcare estates, and water systems.

Malcolm Taylor, North Yorkshire Council Divisional Councillor for Huby, said: “It’s fantastic to see this new investment being made in the Huby area, and I believe this centre will be invaluable for training businesses and delegates in the region. The unique facilities that Training Terrace is able to offer will be an exciting, unique addition to the landscape of industry available here, and I look forward to seeing the new wave of professionals being produced in our area.”
