We invest heavily in training and development and we are passionate to ensure about each individual achieves their full potential. Engineers are encouraged to undertake further academic study, to HNC, HND or Degree level or NVQ’s to Level 4. They are also encouraged and supported to achieve industry relevant certification such as API 510, API570, API653, ASME Plant Inspector L1 & L2 and EEMUA 159. All are encouraged to take up membership of an appropriate Engineering Institute.
Our personnel are strategically placed all around the UK. All our inspection engineers are fully assessed and authorised under our accreditation and act as competent persons under the legislation. Some are embedded within our client’s in-house inspection bodies and provide year-round support; some provide independent inspection support where rak act as competent person for the client organisation. Others provide support on an ad-hoc basis e.g. in support of projects or turnarounds. rak will endeavour to meet the needs of all prospective clients, regardless of how big or small the challenge. The rak management team have a significant amount of contacts throughout the industry and are able to source the right people for the job when a new opportunity arises.
Whilst the majority of our work is UK based, we regularly provide turnaround and inspection support in Europe and worldwide.
