Driver Training Courses with Weston College Somax

Weston College Construction Training Centre CGI

The SOMAX Construction Training Centre is Weston College’s purpose-built training facility.

Located off junction 21 of the M5, the centre provides training at the point of need for businesses and their employees. It’s also been designed to tackle skills shortages in the construction industry.

Each aspect of the centre has been developed to deliver training in a specific industry area – plant operations, street and groundworks, scaffolding, forklifting, and logistics.

Whether your staff need to up-skill for a specific project, upgrade CSCS cards or top-up their CPD, the SOMAX Centre delivers the training you need. Plus, all our courses and qualifications are accredited by nationally recognised bodies and schemes, including CSCS, CITB and CISRS, SSP and CPCS.

As well as the ‘practical’ training areas, the centre boasts everything required of a modern, state-of-the-art educational facility. This includes a canteen, changing facilities, an IT suite, test and exam rooms, meeting spaces and a range of classrooms.
