We are delighted to be celebrating 10 years in business this week! Ten years of striving to make a positive difference to the industry and we are so proud of the many achievements.
To mark this special milestone, we decided to further strengthen our links with miscarriage charity MISS and, together with marketing partner Prospect 13, we have been collecting donations for The Aberdeen Cyrenians Food Bank throughout June.
Ann McRobb Associates was created by our director Ann McRobb, who uses more than two decades of industry experience to head the delivery of a range of onshore and offshore courses. Using a wealth of knowledge across all areas of training and competency, our business delivers large-scale projects supporting major energy, marine and drilling organisations across the globe.
We are also believed to be one of the first in Scotland to roll out our own series of in-house training and competence programs adhering to revised industry body criteria, revolutionising the way oil and gas sector professionals gain industry certifications. The move was sparked by changes to the CMS Approval Criteria permitting organisations to offer their own in-house training packages providing they operate within OPITO guidelines
Meanwhile a recent partnership agreement with leading NDT training, examination and consultancy firm Array Training Ltd is maximising efficiency and long-term safety solutions for clients by bringing together market-leading services. Working in collaboration, we are able to deliver the full scope of NDT training and competency and provide our global customer base access to Array Training’s unrivalled technical knowledge and expertise.
We were also recently awarded the internationally recognised ISO9001:2015 Quality Management System (QMS) standard from DNV, a globally accredited registrar and classification organisation.
Commenting on the business milestone Ann says:
“I was fortunate to secure my first client less than a month after setting up the business back in 2012 and I am particularly proud of the fact that word-of-mouth and professional referrals have been the main drivers for growth.
Reaching this important point in our corporate journey is an important time to reflect on all that has been achieved but, more importantly, it gives us cause to look ahead with confidence and optimism as we prepare for the next decade and beyond.”
