PRESS RELEASE: AFI Group Training Achieves £1m Revenue for Online Bookings

AFI’s successful Training team has reached £1m in revenue from online bookings since it launched the booking system on its website in 2013.

AFI Group Training has announced it has generated over £1m in online training bookings via its UTN Training brand.

UTN Training, part of the AFI group of companies, are a specialist provider of Health, Safety and Skills training to industry, construction and maintenance with a long-established history in Powered Access. They provide working at height and safety training at 30 locations throughout the UK to over 25,000 delegates each year.

The company provides accredited training where experienced and fully qualified trainers deliver a wide range of courses from approved bodies including CITB, IPAF, PASMA, IOSH & NEBOSH. Some of the courses delivered include SSSTS, SMSTS, IPAF, PASMA Towers for Users, NEBOSH General, IOSH Managing Safely as well as a number of New Roads and Street Works training.

IPAF courses cover the main training subjects of 1a, 1b, 3a and 3b for the safe use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs) whilst PASMA courses cover the safe use of alloy towers and include PASMA Towers on Stairs.

The UTN Training website allows customers to benefit from online booking, instant payment facility and most recently, from a range of promotional codes and discounts which are exclusive to online bookings. When a company has a customer account, they can also take advantage of extended payment terms, meaning they don’t have to pay for training immediately at the point of booking.

The UTN Training website gives customers easy and convenient 24/7 access to their accounts so that they can book training at a time that suits their employees and at a location that is near to their homes. It also allows them to view all bookings and training course history whilst giving live information about the dates, locations and number of places available on specific courses.

Training Division Managing Director Matt Scott said;

“Following an extensive customer feedback project, we have recently implemented key changes to the online booking process. It’s reassuring to meet this revenue milestone and know that online bookings have continued to rise year on year. In response to the customer feedback, we are continuously developing the website, the navigation, the booking process and the entire user experience to make it as easy a journey as possible for all our customers to book online.”
