Linx International Group to deliver security training at PD Ports in bid to expand guidance across North of England

In the wake of overwhelming demand, the Linx International Group has announced that it will be delivering security training courses for PD Ports, the shipping and logistics company. This move will not only benefit the shipping industry, but will also provide an opportunity for those based within the North of the UK to attend a local training course. The courses are otherwise held in Oxford or Southampton.

Ciaran Barry, director of Group operations at the Linx International Group, stated: “We’re delighted to be delivering courses at PD Ports’ training facilities. Following market feedback, we have chosen to offer the opportunity to undertake training courses to clients in the northern parts of the UK, who may otherwise find travelling to our other Training Centres more of a challenge.”

Denis Murphy, head of police, security and resilience at PD Ports, commented: “Our organisation is naturally very closely aligned to security, so ensuring our teams have the latest training is paramount to the needs of our business. This collaboration with the Linx International Group was generated by a number of our own team members taking part in training courses hosted at our facilities, which has proven to be an excellent fit for all concerned.”

A full schedule of security courses available at these venues will be released by the Linx International Group in due course and publicised on its website.
