This year, the industry will raise a toast to excellence surrounded by the rich maritime history of the Cutty Sark in London, which is hosting the awards ceremony on 2 November.
The winners of the nine categories will be announced at the ceremony, but in recognition of the growing provision of ECITB approved training across the globe, three international regional winners have been announced. The overall winner chosen from these three is invited to attend the ceremony at the Cutty Sark to be presented with their award in person.
The International Training Provider of the Year award, sponsored by Petrotekno, seeks to acknowledge and celebrate excellence in the delivery of ECITB approved training, products and services by an ECITB Global licenced international training provider or centre.
When deciding on the regional and overall winners, a multitude of factors were considered by an ECITB panel, including delivery numbers, quality of training, demonstrating equality and diversity, innovation and ambition, interaction with the ECITB, collaboration and the value they add overall to their respective markets.
The panel felt that the below three winners were exemplars in their regions this year.
