The investment in the new regional training centre located in Al Quoz reinforces Emrill’s commitment to bringing the highest internationally-benchmarked standards to the industry and support its growing training network, according to the company press release.

The news follows Emrill’s landmark decision earlier this year to open satellite BICSc-certified training rooms at selected client sites, including Dubai International Airport, to fully embed internationally-recognised training standards into working environments.

Known as the Emrill Centre of Excellence, the training centre contains both BICSc-certified and NICEIC-accredited training and assessment rooms and will give students a place for hands-on experience in facilities management alongside a range of classroom-based and digital training. The centre also contains common spaces and rooms for collaboration, workshops, seminars and open learning sessions.

Designed with flexibility in mind, while equipped for specific disciplines and multi-purpose use, the training programmes cover both hard and soft services, as well as interactive training courses for SIRA-certified security guards.

Emrill’s managing director Alex Davies said, “Our investment in this fantastic facility further reinforces Emrill’s commitment to talent development and upskilling our people, by offering team members the most advanced training experience in the market.”

Davies added, “Last year alone, we delivered 134,667 training man-hours, an increase of 4.87 per cent, which led to an increase of 17 per cent in internal staff promotions. We are clearly investing in our people through training that really works and pays off for all stakeholders, most importantly our clients and end users through internationally benchmarked, top of the market service delivery.”

Sarah Rodgers, who recently took over as head of soft services at Emrill, is responsible for the learning and development department.

The new facility is significantly larger and more technologically-advanced than Emrill’s previous training centre and consists of real-life environment training rooms with housekeeping, concierge, office and engineering mock-ups, plus colour-coded static displays of equipment and materials. Digital learning has also been implemented.
