Case Study
SBL provide wireless network training for innovative military services company

Specialist training and facilities management company VT Flagship needed a wireless network installing on to a Ministry of Defence (MoD) Training Facility as part of a project it was delivering.

VT Flagship was founded in 1996 when a ground breaking partnering agreement was made with the

MoD to deliver support services to reduce costs and generate income for the Royal Navy. VT Flagship wanted its Technical Team to be fully trained in the wireless network system so that they could carry out the installation themselves.

At the time of the partnering agreement Portsmouth-based VT Flagship was called Flagship Training Ltd and was an equal joint venture between VT Group and BAE Systems.

Today VT Flagship, part of VT Education and Skills, the UK’s largest Education and Training Company, provides a range of bespoke services, including providing training to military, maritime and commercial customers and is also regarded as a leading supplier of facilities and construction and property management services to the MoD.

After initial discussions with VT Flagship, it was agreed that an SBL consultant specialising in wireless applications would provide an on-site, three-day wireless network administrator’s training course for the VT Flagship Technical Team.

This included an opportunity to discuss `real-life’ examples with the SBL consultant to provide `problem-based learning’ as he had a wealth of experience about implementing wireless networks and the issues surrounding their use and application. The training was provided and set up in the VT Flagship allocated training room and training provided to six delegates.

VT Flagship IS Business Support Officer, Mark Adey, says: “The training provided by SBL was exactly what we were looking for in terms of its pitch, presentation and clarity and enabled us achieve our objectives.”
