About – Consultancy & Courses


Bespoke solutions for a competent workforce, skills solutions designed with you and your industry in mind.

Cogent Skills Solutions works with employers to develop, design and deploy skills solutions for the science industries. We offer a range of process safety courses and competency management solutions tailored to the specific needs of employers. Our courses are designed in partnership with employers and industry stakeholders, underpinned by national standards and support employers to meet the requirements of regulatory bodies.

At the forefront of Process Safety Management (PSM) training for major hazard industries for over 9 years, we focus on delivering a high quality, culture change Process Safety programme that makes a positive impact in participating companies.  Our competence management solutions are based on established industry best practice guidelines and deliver practical support to employers to take ownership of organisational competence management and assurance.

We continue to work closely with key leaders in the field and our partners on the Process Safety Management Competence Programme Board (PSMCPB) including the HSE & Environment Agency, trade associations, professional bodies, employers and unions to maintain the status of the PSM Training Standards so that they continue to be recognised by the Competent Authorities as well as industry.

A not-for-profit skills organisation, Cogent Skills acts as the custodian of the PSM Training Standards, with the remit to engage employers across major hazard industries; encouraging them to adopt the Standards and managing the commissioning and delivery of high-quality PSM courses. We promote, organise, and quality assure the delivery of PSMCPB recognised training, facilitating the establishment of Process Safety culture change programmes and raising awareness and embedding best practice in Process Safety in high hazard organisations.

So it’s no surprise that we design, deliver and quality assure targeted training and consultancy solutions for businesses and lead the way with our training for major hazard awareness for leaders, managers, operators and contractors.
