Training Location

All Ocean-Tec Systems Training Courses are delivered at our training venue within the Blackwell Grange Hotel on the outskirts of Darlington itself.

Ocean-Tec provide all IT Equipment needed for each course, our mobile Dell training room includes networked PCs, internet access and access to a printer during the course.

The Venue offers full amenities and cooked dinners within the restaurant during all training courses, and a steady supply of coffee, tea and soft drinks throughout the day.

The logic behind the venue was simple, one of our directors went on various training courses and always ended up with large Taxi bills, by negotiating with the local Hotels Ocean-Tec have been able to offer delegates a single source supply, no taxis each morning etc, and from our side no reason for anyone to be late as they could be accommodated within the training venue. Ocean-Tec are also able to offer discounted accommodation to delegates, please contact us for details.
