Who we are
Pete Gruncell Cert Ed, QTLS, SIIRAM, Tech IOSH
As the owner of the company, I am a time served Confined Spaces entrant and Authorised Person (AP), with over 20 years’ experience and qualified to MOD JSP375. I am now a City & Guilds Confined Spaces Trainer Assessor & IQA, and formally an NPORS Confined Spaces Trainer & Assessor. I also teach bespoke Confined Spaces for other organisations.
I hold British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) First Class Diver and Advanced Instructor qualifications and used to work on the BSAC Instructor Development Courses (IDC) and Skill Development Courses (SDC). I have also worked with several of the Technical Diving Agencies over the years for whom I used to be an Instructor Trainer running my own Diver Training centre. This part I have now passed over to a former student and friend Andy Tyas who now continues the Technical Diving aspect.
As for First Aid, I first started as a junior member of the British Red Cross Society in 1977 and between 1979 – 2002 in the Royal Signals I have had a continuous education in First Aid and officially gained a recognised First Aid Teaching award in 2015.
Since 1 April 2008 I have been teaching confined spaces full time and part of my job involved sitting on the MOD working Groups for both Confined Spaces and Work at Height. Having been made redundant in October 2011 I started my own company and I have worked for several other training companies ever since. This brings me up to current date where I now run my own City & Guilds Training centre 008214 and Qualsafe Centre 0904652.
