Helptrainingcourses.com which helps individuals find places on career-boosting training courses and offers discounted unique last-minute training deals similar to travel websites.
The business was launched 12 months ago by County Durham entrepreneurs – and childhood friends – Craig Fantarrow and John Patrick.
The aim of the website is to ‘help’ users buy training courses with ease and fill up places on last minute courses at discounted rates, rather than allowing them to go to waste.
The company has enjoyed a period of rapid growth over the last year, growing its team of staff to five and winning the backing of over 330 companies with listing to around 8,000 training courses.
In the year ahead, the business expects to increase the size of its workforce to 10, and more than double the number of courses it promotes to over 20,000.
Having added Jayne Petty, Ann Boyd and Natalie Kirton to its team it has stepped up its sales, marketing and customer service capabilities and aims to continue its progression into a one-stop shop for training providers and individuals.
In the coming months, it will add several new features to the site including a freelance trainer directory and access to market training equipment all aimed at making it easier for the end user who is looking to find training courses.
Mike Corry, director at Corry UK uses the site to book all staff training courses. He said:
“Helptrainingcourses.com has made searching for training courses so much easier, faster and cost-effective for me. It’s easy to search and find the exact course you’re looking for all on one site whereas before I would end up trawling the web for hours. The last-minute deals offer some fantastic discounts and I would certainly recommend anyone who is looking for training courses to visit the site.”
Mr Fantarrow, who also runs North East training firm Help! First Aid Training, said: “Like any new business the first year has been hard work, but it has been extremely satisfying to build a revenue stream from scratch.
“We have made a number of innovative developments to our site in the last 12 months as we have strived to make it as easy as possible for users to find training that will help them on their career path.
Mr Patrick added: “Our success this year has been largely down to hard work and keeping at it. We have a system of continuous professional contact management through telemarketing with our training providers and are constantly engaged with them.
“We offer a friendly approach and affordable service, and enable our clients to get the maximum benefit from the features of the website.”
Helptrainingcourses.com allows individuals to register for notifications and updates on courses that interest them and the highly optimised site has revolutionised the way many training providers offer access to courses.
