By joining the global representative body for critical communications, Wray Castle said it would be able to provide global insight and expertise spanning defence, transport and utility to share throughout the TCCA membership and the wider critical communications ecosystem.

Wray Castle chief executive Andrew White said: “We are delighted to have joined TCCA and are eager to serve its members with a wide range of highly relevant learning and development programs, ranging from individual courses to fully structured learning pathways.

“Too often large infrastructure investment is not matched by investment in a sector’s talent base. We are pleased to share TCCA’s passion for life-long learning through the provision of industry best-in-class training.”

Following joining the industry body, White added that the academy would begin to offer digital badging, together with TCCA/Wray Castle branded diplomas and certificates “to ensure industry-wide recognition for those that undertake the courses”.

Kevin Graham, TCCA CEO, said: “There is increasing pressure across our sector to respond to the changing telecoms environment while meeting demands for cost-effectiveness, security and efficiency.

“The need for up-to-date technical skills for those involved in maintaining and developing critical communications systems and services continues to grow. We look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship with Wray Castle and extend a warm welcome to the team.”
