Why us?

Let us introduce ourselves:

Created by two ex-Royal Engineers tired of poorly conceived and executed career courses and advice provision, BV Associates Ltd is now nationally recognised as a quality provider of training and consultancy.  Our journey has not been easy as a small fish in a large pond, and there have been noteworthy and not so noteworthy years, many moments of doubt and periods of stress.  Throughout, we have kept two things in mind: our roots and our clients’ needs.

The philosophy of BV Associates Limited is to make safety training easy and accessible for all businesses.  We employ trainers located throughout the UK delivering dynamic classroom training courses.  Each trainer is professionally trained and experienced to provide you with a service that delivers informative and enjoyable training but more importantly making the subject matter easy to understand. We also keep the content of all classroom delivery fresh and lively to deliver a better knowledge retention rate.  We are regulated and approved by the following awarding bodies:

  • NEBOSH Gold Level Provider
  • IOSH Approved Provider
  • ELCAS Funding Approved Supplier
  • CTP Preferred Supplier
  • Silver Defence Employer Recognition Scheme
  • Safe Contractor Approved

Our Director of Marketing, Lisa Corrinna is Dean’s wife, who has been by his side for 21 years of military service and whilst growing the company.  Lisa keeps the partnership in check, having worked as an English Heritage apprentice and then working at prestigious construction sites across the UK as a fully qualified Specialist Painter and Decorator – she knows first-hand the attitudes, ethos, barriers and constraints of working in this sector.  Our Head of Training Operations, Nik Taylor, left the services as a Warrant Officer Class 1 and is now a Major with the Reserves. Claire Carlton joined the company 4 years ago and is now employed full time as our Lead Training Advisor.  Both are consummate professionals and rightly receive constant praise for their training and administrative support.

Claire and Nik’s determination to provide additional support above and beyond other providers is what makes people come back to us time and time again for their training needs. When training with us our learners are part of the family and we share their ups and downs, failures and successes. Many stay in touch and let us know how they are getting on with their own careers – this remains one of the most enjoyable aspects of what we do and drives us on.
