Affordable, Convenient, High Quality Training
At Quadratica UK we are continually looking for ways to provide our customers with the best functionality, in the most economic format. Training can be expensive, and the quality of instruction can vary from trainer to trainer. Our online training courses deliver high quality training, every time. Scheduling training for a large work force no longer requires the hire of training rooms, or taking staff off the floor. Our courses are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so training can be scheduled around staff availability and convenience.
To keep our clients’ training overheads down, we have priced our courses by the unit – if only 2 people require training, our clients only pay for 2 units, whereas a certified instructor will charge the same amount whether they are training 2 or 20 people.
We provide training managers with the best possible tools to educate their security staff by continually developing groundbreaking technologies. Our products are designed with a strong focus on our customers’ ever evolving needs and the shifting landscapes of the security industry.
