Introduction to Hire

Introduction to Hire

Course Overview

This programme gives a complete overview of the equipment hire industry, outlines work opportunities, and highlights possible career paths. The programme can be delivered by HAE EHA Training or internally by your own teams using our free training pack.

The course content is aimed at individuals entering work or seeking a new career, including school-age learners, ex-military forces, young people not in education, and long term unemployed. Another goal of the programme is to encourage more gender and cultural diversity when recruiting for the hire and construction sector.

Programme Content

Key learning outcomes for delegates include:

  • What is hire, why do people and companies do it
  • How the hire industry is made up
  • Customer service and compliance
  • Why hire is good for the environment
  • The range of skills required and funded training available
  • The range of employment opportunities on offer
  • Programme Delivery

    Option 1: Delivery by HAE EHA
    Delegates can attend an upcoming scheduled training session, on-site or remote online learning (see above)

    Option 2: Delivery by Members
    Contact us for the free training pack and deliver the course internally or blend elements of the training into your existing new-starter induction programmes

    When delivering the course internally it is important that information on delegates is provided to the HAE EHA Training team.

    Programme Benefits

    Delegates who complete the full 6-hour programme will receive a certificate of completion, available from HAE EHA Training for £10 each plus VAT.

    There is also the option for delegates to achieve the Level 1 Award: Introduction to the Hire and Rental Industry however, this will involve some evidence gathering and a subsequent assessment visit. For many this might be a first qualification and, if hire is chosen as a career path, makes the perfect foundation for other industry qualifications such as ServiceTechHire Desk Controller and Management and Leadership NVQ programmes.

    Options for Delivering the Training

    HAE EHA members have the option to deliver the training with a certificate of achievement, or incorporate training elements into their existing new-starter induction programmes, rather than offering a full Level 1 award.
