Training Will be One in a Multi-Million

Shaping the future of the industry by evolving standards of service to new heights, Combico UK, the specialist training division of First Choice Group, intends to break new ground in 2017.

Technical Training Manager, Martin Dagnall, said the ambition to develop provision at the company’s new multi-million-pound state-of-the-art headquarters will result in greater opportunities for gas engineers.

“Combico UK is a specialised business which is dedicated to supporting the commercial catering industry,” he said.
“Our focus is clear, quality matters so our training is organised and facilitated to ensure engineers receive both the knowledge and the experience they will need to succeed in the industry. The technology and equipment that we use provides candidates with the chance to work on the kind of equipment they will come into contact with every day. Having this familiarity is crucial as it means they are fully prepared to carry out work with the insight and expertise that’s required.”

In May, First Choice Group is relocating to its new home on Staffordshire’s exclusive Kingswood Lakeside development. The move will allow Combico UK to expand its training provision.

“The move to our new facility will be a massive boost to our training as we will be able to extend our fully equipped, fully functional kitchens and the equipment used in them to train on,” adds Martin. "It means the opportunities to gas engineers will be even bigger and better than they were before as services will be expanded and new courses created.”

First Choice Group was established in 1999 with the acquisition of Combico UK made in March 2014. Since then the business has revolutionised the culture of engineer training with candidates from across the UK and Europe.
