The Training Academy

Our Training Academy has relocated!

We now operate from within the Black Country & Marches Institute of Technology building, based in Dudley. The Department of Education made £170m available to establish a network of Institutes of Technology nationally to offer training opportunities with clear pathways to skilled jobs. Avensys was invited to move into the new IoT site in Dudley to provide bio-medical engineering and decontamination/sterilisation training.

 

 

Mock hospital

When designing our new facilities, our aim was to make training conditions as realistic as possible, which is why we’ve attempted to mimic the hospital environment. Complete with a ward, theatre, diagnostic imaging room, sterile services room, dental suite and equipment library, we’ve managed to simulate the day to day working conditions of bio-medical engineers.  

Classrooms

Prior to practical training sessions in our mock hospital, its vital that our learners understand the theory behind what they’re learning. Our classrooms are light and spacious and incorporate the latest educational technologies, each classroom is equipped with a 70″ interactive screen to facilitate modern teaching methods.  

 

 

Facilities for learners to utilise during breaks

Whilst on a break from their training course, learners can visit our onsite bistro, where lunch and refreshments are available. Directly outside of the classrooms you’ll find a large seating area where learners can relax. There are also desks available if you need to catch up on work.

Conference facilities

Downstairs, The Institute of Technology has numerous conference rooms and an Atrium, which are at our disposal if required for training purposes. In October these facilities were used as the venue for our annual conference which included a manufacturer exhibition and several lectures.

Travelling

Our dedicated modern training facility for engineering technicians, clinicians and nursing staff, has up to date equipment and is centrally located in the Midlands within easy access to motorways and all network links.

By road

Free car parking is available on-site at the Institute of Technology car park. 

By air

We’re approximately 25 miles (35-minute drive) from Birmingham airport.

By rail

We’re approximately 2-miles (7-minute taxi ride or 35-minute walk) from Dudley Port train station.
