COVID-19 UPDATE - 1st July 2020

Dear customer, The Equipe team are pleased to announce that after an extremely busy development period, we are now able to return to classroom-based training.

We will now be opening our training facilities back up to deliver in-person training courses. The courses will have reduced delegate numbers in order to facilitate appropriate social distancing measures, and we have added extra increased hygiene facilities and sanitising stations to minimise the potential for any disease transmission.

Online courses will still be offered if and when required and bespoke online courses can be arranged and delivered via the Zoom Video Conferencing platform – please contact us for further details on this. All upcoming dates for our courses can be found here.

We are also delighted to announce the launch of a new on-demand online training venture called GEO Academy. The platform features a number of short-form, modular technical courses that are available to customers anytime, anywhere. Please visit geoacademy.co.uk to immerse yourself in the future of geotechnical training.

Our main office is now back open and we are also still able to carry out SPT Calibrations, LOLER Inspections and other on-site assessments.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
Julian Lovell & Keith Spires, Directors, Equipe Group
