PSI Global Becomes First Recruitment Agency Affiliate Member of Train the Painter
PSI Global Group Limited (PSI Global) have been named as the first agency affiliate member of Train the Painter. The acclaimed programme is known as, “the world’s leading industry recognised and fully accredited Industrial Coating Applicator Training Programme.”
Being an affiliate member of the programme will allow PSI Global, a UK-based recruitment agency, to provide their own training to the workforce on a number of their projects. The aim is to give the current workforce an opportunity to upskill while giving potential workers in the local community the assistance they may need for a career change.
“This is a big step forward for PSI Global and our commitment to putting our workforce first,” said Divisional Manager Rebecca Law. “Being an affiliate member of Train the Painter allows us to provide training to our workforce as and when we need it. It’s a great opportunity for our industrial painters who might otherwise not have had the opportunity to get the certifications necessary to continue their career.”
The training courses are now live, and the recruitment agency has officially enrolled their first three candidates on the programme. They are now completing their online training, and Law shared that the Industrial Services team at PSI Global are looking forward to watching them progress in their careers.
