Drain Doctor receives training accreditation from City & Guilds

Plumbing and drainage franchise Drain Doctor has teamed up with vocational awards body City & Guilds to launch a new accredited training programme for its franchisees and technicians. Drain Doctor is planning to launch the new initiative to its franchisees at its annual convention this year in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Drain Doctor chairman Freddie Mitman said: "The customers already enthuse about the company's service standards. Couple this with accredited training to City & Guilds' own high standards and customers will know they are getting a first-class job carried out by a technician with the right skills for the task. Drain Doctor always makes certain staff are trained to the highest standards in order to give customers dazzling service. Now, with City & Guilds accreditation, Drain Doctor can offer franchisees the best possible training available to provide their staff with a nationally recognised qualification."

Drain Doctor was established in 1993 and now has a nationwide franchisee network. City & Guilds is one of the largest vocational awarding bodies and has worked with colleges, training providers and businesses for over 125 years.
