Helping to upskill the energy workforce


GCSG Training ltd is the UKs fasted growing training centre. Initially focusing on industrial coatings, GCSG Training ltd are now a major training provider for the Oil and Gas, North Sea industry.

GCSG Training ltd have now also launched their unique & bespoke “Training on the ropes” courses, where the intention is to combine some of the above courses with rope access methods. This would see an industry first where delegates would not only learn certain aspects of the job, but learn how to conduct these safely whilst on ropes.

“We find that what we teach on the ground is not directly transferable to the ropes, things change drastically when you’re hanging 100 feet in the air. We find that this training gives RATS (Rope access Technicians) more comfort and ultimately makes them safer & more competent, whilst on the ropes.” Said Nicky Adams, Managing Director.

With each course being uniquely and exclusively designed for the client and their project, this will ensure the correct level of training and the correct competence of the employees whilst on the job. Ensuring that care is taken for dropped objects, correct lashing of airlines and equipment, correct rescue techniques and that the job is conducted safely and correctly.

“We can tach someone to hold a hogger (Blast hose) and fire grit into a surface at 8 bar fairly quickly. However, if you ask them to do that with no base to plant their feet and at 2 metres above the sea, it’s a whole other ball game” – Added Nicky.
