What Training Will I Receive?

Pirtek place a strong emphasis on training their network of staff from depot assistant’s right through to Franchisee level with a priority placed on technical & Health & Safety training for its technical staff. The core of our training is based around induction and every member of staff that joins the Pirtek network attend a ten day residential training course at our purpose built National Training Centre which is situated in central Birmingham. The Induction programme is a City & Guilds accredited programme which is a highly intensive programme designed to ensure all of our staff members have the skills to select and assemble Pirtek products and components to the highest level.

In addition a large proportion of the induction programme focuses on Health & Safety standards, our team of NEBOSH qualified trainers ensure that the highest levels of Health & Safety training, instruction and information is imparted to all individuals that attend the programme. With the introduction of live plant and equipment within the training centre we are able to offer real life working experiences for all that attend the programme.

The Franchise Opportunity

Pirtek is a business format franchisee (as opposed to the one-man-van approach) in that you will be managing a team of technicians and support staff.    The ability to manage and motivate a team is therefore essential for your success. Together with man management skills our franchisees need to have a thorough technical appreciation of our market.
