DMR now delivers training from two main facilities:
- DMR Training Centre in Leigh (Tarleton Villa, 87-89 Church Street, Leigh WN7 1AZ)
- ProCo NW Wigan Skills Centre (ProCo NW Ltd, Presscott Road, Wigan WN6 7DD)
The DMR Training Centre is a relatively new facility in the centre of Leigh that contains a suite of practical workshop training areas alongside a number of training rooms and classrooms. All training sessions are delivered on the ground floor level, and some practical training delivery takes place in outdoor training areas to replicate industry practice and to create a realistic working environment. All workshops and classrooms are fully equipped with up-to-date tools, materials and equipment to ensure high-quality training provision. The training facilities meet the requirements of the C-Skills Awards and City & Guilds awarding organisations and, as such, the DMR Training Centre holds Accredited Centre status.
Wigan Skills Centre
The Wigan Skills Centre boasts a large number of spacious and high-tech training rooms, workshops and classrooms to really bring apprenticeship training to life. Each dedicated construction trade training area is fully-equipped and set up to reflect the real-life settings of professional workplaces. Delivering training in environments which resemble those an apprentice will encounter on their work placements helps each apprentice to translate their learning into real life experience.
Getting to Leigh
There is a guided busway between Manchester and the training facility along with bus links to all other Greater Manchester towns from the central bus station which is a ten minute walk away. Leigh is accessible from the M6 & M60 motorways and the A580. A car park for apprentices and visitors is available adjacent to the DMR Training Centre. The nearest railway station is Atherton.
Getting to Wigan
The Wigan Skills Centre is in the centre of Wigan on main bus routes and in close proximity to both Wigan Wallgate and Wigan North Wester train stations. The centre has plenty of parking for those travelling by car and is accessible from the M58 and M6 motorways.
