TORQUAY-BASED Essential 6 has increased its courses by more than a third in the last 12 months due to repeat business and competitive prices.

The business offers compliance training courses such as first aid, health and safety and fire safety, and this year more than 7,000 people will be trained.

Alan Foster, who set up the business, said: "In the first seven months of this year we delivered more courses than we did in the whole of 2011.

"We're on track to reach a 40 per cent increase in courses delivered by the end of this year."

Essential 6 is now based at the Torquay Innovation Centre and operated by Torbay Development Agency, Torbay Council's economic development company.

Alan said: "The innovation centre is ideal as it has very good facilities, there are networking opportunities with other businesses and it's in a good central position."

The company is a preferred supplier to Devon County Council and also works with Plymouth City Council, McDonald's, Age UK and Barnardos, together with hotels and small start-up businesses.

Torbay mayor Gordon Oliver said: "Cost effectiveness and affordability are key considerations for companies and I am pleased that Essential 6 is taking advantage of our innovation centre to fuel its growth and strengthen our economy."
