RISK celebrates Armed Forces Day with exclusive ELCAS NEBOSH offer
19 June 2019
Armed Forces Day 2019 takes place on Saturday 29 June and RISK is marking the occasion with a special offer to service personnel looking to use their ELCAS funding for NEBOSH training.
We are offering a special ‘buy one, get one free’ offer, to access a free CITB Site Management Safety Training Scheme Course, when you book a NEBOSH General, Construction or Fire Certificate course. Although service personnel are not able to use their ELCAS funding towards CITB training, NEBOSH is eligible. Our offer provides ex-servicemen and women with the opportunity to make their funding go further by gaining a CITB qualification alongside a NEBOSH one.
About Armed Forces Day
Armed Forces Day is an annual, national event which gives people across the UK the chance to show support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community. It celebrates currently serving troops, service families, veterans and cadets.
A host of events take place every year. There are many ways for people, communities and organisations to show their support and get involved, from attending an organised event to throwing a party or creating their own celebration. The official national event this year will be held in Salisbury.
When is Armed Forces Day?
Armed Forces Day commemoration begins on Monday 24 June when the Armed Forces Day flag is raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country. Showing support for the Armed Forces provides a much valued morale boost for the troops and their families. Businesses, the Government and community organisations also get involved, by signing the Armed Forces Covenant to show their support.
What is ELCAS?
The Enhanced Learning Credits Administration Service (ELCAS) is a Government-led initiative designed to support the lifelong learning of members of the UK Armed Forces.
Whether you are currently in the Armed Forces and are planning your future civilian career, or have already served and are looking for qualifications to start a new career, we offer a variety of ELCAS approved health and safety training courses for military personnel. These help you develop your skills and confidence to gain employment once you've left the military.
About our exclusive ELCAS NEBOSH offer
Our offer applies to eligible courses booked within 28 days of Armed Forces Day. It is only eligible for telephone bookings and to claim, you must simply make it known to the customer support person that you want to take up the CITB training offer.
