Liverpool John Lennon Airport recently celebrated the launch of a new onsite Training and Development Centre. The new facility was officially opened by Andy Gower, Airport Director at LJLA, in a traditional ribbon cutting ceremony.


The Centre, which is the first of its kind for LJLA, has the facilities to accommodate a wide range of internal and external training courses and is based landside (before security control) near to the Airport terminal making it easily accessible to all airport and non-airport based companies. Previous training took place airside (after security control), with minimal courses on offer.

The number of courses now readily available has increased and varies from Manual Handling, to Basic Fire Awareness, First Aid in the Workplace and Flight and Cabin Crew Training. Two of LJLA’s Training Officers manage and conduct the training and are supported by fire fighters from LJLA’s Fire and Rescue Service.

Jason Stuart, Senior Training Officer at LJLA, said: "I’m delighted with the opening of LJLA’s new Training and Development Centre as we now have the right facility and environment to not only train our own employees based on site but also external companies from all over the region. The facilities in the new centre enable us to perform the specialist training such as Manual Handling, First Aid at Work, Fire Safety training, and as of this month onwards a Fork Lift truck training course will also be available. There are many more courses on offer and we are confident that they will appeal to many more companies. We have already had a great response from companies within the Merseyside region which we are delighted with.”

For more information on the courses available at LJLA’s training and development centre please call 0151 907 1564/1567 or email Jason Stuart at [email protected] or Kenny Hudson at [email protected]
