TWI Training and Examination Services now boasts state-of-the-art equipment and
specialist training facilities as part of a recent expansion of TWI’s head office
at Abington, near Cambridge, in the UK with almost 850m2 of the new development
dedicated to providing world-class training.
In addition, the new spacious purpose-built facilities include dedicated NDT teaching
labs with advanced NDT equipment, a 196m2 welder training centre, classrooms equipped
with the latest audio-visual technology to enable remote teaching, and assessment
centres to carry out secure electronic examinations.
Course attendees can also relax, socialise and enjoy meals from 7.30am to 7.00pm
served in the new 300-seat staff and visitor on-site restaurant.
With courses operating in the new facilities since Spring, the feedback from delegates
and training staff on the new facilities has been overwhelmingly positive.
Dr. Marcus Jones, Global Manager Training and Examinations said, "The new £60 million
development brings TWI's advanced research, engineering, materials, and training,
closer together to offer students from around the world an exceptional learning
experience. TWI Training is helping industry improve safety, integrity and business
performance by enhancing the competence of its students.”
As well as a new base for the training arm of the company, the three-building development
also provides new research and development laboratories for TWI, including a 3200m2
engineering hall, and houses the headquarters of the Welding Institute and the National
Structural Integrity Research Centre, a hub for postgraduate education integrated
The site was officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal on 16 September 2015, when
HRH The Princess Royal toured the new facilities and met with staff and students.
