-- HSS Hire, the national supplier of tool and equipment hire, has received formal endorsement for its specialist training division, HSS Training, from the Facilities Management Association (FMA).

HSS Training was rigorously assessed by the FMA to gain this endorsement, achieving full compliance across all categories including management, venues, training material and trainers.
HSS Hire Training Director, Mark Winfield comments: "We are delighted to have received this endorsement from the FMA - we are commited to offering the best training and to making it easy for our customers to access the training they need and it's nice to have what we do formally recognised by such an important third party. Over the past two years, we have invested significantly in our training capabilities with new training centres across the UK and Ireland and we've expanded the courses we offer and in the team of experts that deliver them. We look forward to continuing this progress into the new year and beyond."
Chris Hoar, Chief Executive of the FMA, adds: "HSS Training is a very professional organisation, something that was evident as soon as we entered their training centres. They demonstrate an excellent commitment to highest standards in training with a skilled team of trainers, a broad range of courses that link to trade organisation and professional body requirements and very good, modern training facilities. The FMA had no hesitation in endorsing HSS's training capability and the courses they offer. They are the first company to achieve our endorsement and have really set the standard for the rest of their industry."
