HOTA - Brief History

As a limited company with charity status, HOTA was established from a Local Collaborative Project in 1987, when major oil and gas companies such as Conoco, British Gas and BP, who had previously sent their personnel to Scotland or Norfolk for nationally approved training, wanted to establish a more locally-based training facility. As a result, HOTA was established by the industry, for the industry and during those early days offered just six, nationally approved, courses for the offshore industry.

For over 30 years, HOTA has been delivering high-quality training to the oil and gas sectors. It is renowned for its flexibility and its highly trained team of professional trainers delivering courses when, where and how they are required. Through diversification and ever-changing industry needs HOTA now trains over 8,000 delegates annually and offers in excess of 100 courses in:

A limited company with charity status, all surplus funds generated are ploughed back into enhancing its purpose-built training facilities based in Hull at The Cullen and The Ellis Buildings in Malmo Road and Albert Dock Sites.

No matter what training requirements your organisation requires, both HFR Solutions CIC and HOTA have the industry knowledge, experienced instructors and facilities to deliver best practice training that helps your delegates increase their confidence and competency levels and enables them to apply these newly learned skills at their place of work.

Karen Shepherd, General Manager at HOTA, comments:

“This is an excellent opportunity for two highly professional local companies to collaborate and offer their expertise from the maritime and offshore industries, and the fire and rescue service, to various sectors”.
