Legislative and Competency Based Short Courses


As part of our training offer, the College offers a wide range of legislative, competency based and professional courses. Courses range from short one day legislative courses like the safe use of pesticides to year-long construction management qualifications.  

All our courses are taught and assessed by qualified industry experts to help you and your team to develop additional skills and expertise. You can take your pick from a wide range of courses, designed to make sure people are competent at particular activities, as well as ensuring that the health and safety standards of the industry are met.

Training is normally carried out at Moulton College but we can also deliver at your place of work if the number of people involved supports that approach – clearly this results in minimum disruption to your day-to-day operations. We’re happy to work with employers to understand their requirements and draw up bespoke training solutions to meet their needs.

Located in rural Northamptonshire, around 5 miles from Northampton, you’ll find our training facilities first-class.
