Practical Health and Safety Training provider, AquaTerra Training, has appointed Bi-lingual Ivy Amoakoaa Nkansah as Training and Operations Administrator for their operations in West Africa. 

From AquaTerra’s facilities in Ghana, Ivy’s linguistic skills will help expand AquaTerra’s client portfolio by catering for the varying languages across the region.

A young graduate from Kwame Nkrumah University, Ivy is fluent in several languages including English and French, the most widely spoken languages in the region.  Having joined the AquaTerra team at the end of 2013 she has already proved to be a valuable addition.

Commenting on her appointment West Africa Manager, Warren Cooper, said: “We’re delighted to have Ivy join the expanding team in Ghana.  In the short space of time that Ivy has been with us we’ve had many of our courses and marketing materials translated into French and, on the back of it, have secured a number of new clients from adjacent French speaking countries in the region.”

AquaTerra’s West African operations has grown significantly in recent months with a move to larger premises in Takoradi, complete with bespoke training facilities and the appointment of several new training instructors.

An established UK company, AquaTerra setup a base Ghana in 2011 and since that time they have worked across a variety of projects from the provision of offshore rope access inspection personnel onboard FPSO’s and Drilling Rigs and also an array of training services including the delivery of courses such as Working at Height and Dangerous Goods.
