Courses will be held at the St Thomas Centre -- a renovated, Grade II-listed Georgian church situated within an attractive and peaceful area facing Ardwick Green Park. Experienced members of the RRC tutor team based in the North West will be delivering the courses.
For 2017, there are plans to expand the range of courses being offered, to include NEBOSH Fire Certificate and Construction Certificate courses.
Demand for courses at the new centre is already high. Says RRC managing director Gary Fallaize: "Manchester is a very vibrant and fast-developing city, so it is a logical choice for us as RRC's North West centre."
RRC now provides training at four UK centres in London, Birmingham, Newcastle and Manchester.
