We are extremely proud of our SQA and BT accredited specialist telecoms skills training centre based at our Warwickshire Head Office. The Academy allows us to instil consistent quality and safety practices in all our teams.
CASS Academy consists of 1.5 acre training ground with 2 training classrooms and a capacity for up to 24 learners/candidates at any one time (current Covid 19 restrictions reduce this to 6 per classroom to maintain social distancing). The facility has 12 full sized telegraph poles and 6 learner poles for overhead training such as modern Ultra lightweight fibre skills. Over 900m of 4 way underground ducts with 12 BT boxes for cabling and blown fibre training.
For very niche fibre blowing training we have x6 duct loops of 400m each where learners train on blowing cable, rope, bundles and dart techniques. With 2 confined space training chambers and a BT manhole on site we have replicated the real thing in the field telecom domain that our graduates will work on after accreditation. We have built a dedicated Fibre only fibre training room and that is supported by 3 satellite training spaces on site. A new third classroom is currently under construction due to be complete this Autumn.
A welfare cabin with vending machine, microwave and seating area for candidate lunch breaks is also available. We have the full ability to train and accredit candidates in various skills required for copper and fibre works, including Streetworks NRSWA, CSCS card award (EUSR), Confined Spaces and Openreach modules of accreditation.
We look forward to welcoming new team members in the future.
