PDS International Limited

Description

QUALIFICATIONS Carol and Peter are both qualified trainers (TDLB Level 4) as well as holding the City and Guilds qualifications for Internal Assessment , Internal Verification and External Verifier. PDS assessors and trainers are allocated to clients based on their occupational competence in the clients industry sector. For example we would not allocate an assessor with occupational competence running large format multi colour presses, to a company printing glass cosmetic bottles, even though they both use the screen printing process. PDS are unique in the printing industry as the companies who do offer some training in printing (normally machinery or consumable suppliers) do not hold any formal qualifications.
