The AMRC Training Centre opened its doors for the first time in October 2013. It is an amazing place for learning, with state of the art machinery and technology, teaching rooms and open learning areas available.
We also deliver higher education courses such as our Foundation Degree and Higher Apprenticeship programmes, and in addition to those we delivery leadership training up to MBA level and technical qualifications to help engineers improve their skills and careers.
