Every Learner is Different | Ricky’s Story
After Ricky became an Assessor and IQA through Brooks and Kirk, he used our Consultancy Service to set up his own training provider in the Waste and Resource Management sector.
Life before Brooks and Kirk
Ricky was working for a waste management company. The company do a lot of consultations itself, such as environmental permitting for regulated waste facilities so they can build the management systems they need. Ricky said that waste management is a tricky niche and quite old school, but he knew where he wanted to go and to make sure he can deliver the right qualifications.
Ricky had a job offer waiting for him so he was invested and determined to become a qualified assessor so he can be good at his job and have expertise.
Finding Brooks and Kirk
When searching the web for a training provider, Ricky came across us at Brooks and Kirk. He compared our prices with other training providers, but once he saw that we offer access to learners, he was sold. Ricky told us that having us provide access to learners for him really took the headache out of everything – he’s even told some of his own learners to enrol on the assessor course, as it makes it so much easier for all parties.
As for his enrolment on the Lead IQA, Ricky couldn’t resist our returning learner discount!
“Can’t thank all of you enough. Laura, Dan and Steve are amazing. To compare where I was a few years ago and where I am now is insane.”
Ricky really enjoyed the course, as he knew he was working towards knowledge that he would use in his role, it made it all the more enjoyable. Being a waste management assessor gave him a high level of respect in the industry. Ricky wanted to them get registered on the Lead IQA, to improve his role even more.
Life after the Assessor Course
As can be seen above, Ricky enrolled onto our Lead IQA course shortly after finishing his assessor course. As Ricky’s sector is so very niche, he believes it’s just a matter of making his business well known against competitors.
“If you are absolutely sold on the prospect of becoming an assessor, then you should absolutely study with Brooks and Kirk.
Consultation wise, the price of my VLE is exceptionally good value – Dan gave me exceptionally good training on it and allowed me to record training videos so I could master it in my own time. If you’re setting up a training centre, then make sure you’re committed as there’s a lot of work necessary.”
