Current Status 

We would like to reassure our customers that IMechE Argyll Ruane will remain open to provide training, examination and Level III services during the current pandemic. While the UK government has relaxed COVID-19 restrictions, due to the large number of students attending our Sheffield training centre from across the UK and overseas, and the risk of spreading the highly contagious variants that are currently prevalent, we will be adhering to stricter measures and will not be significantly changing any of our COVID-19 health and safety measures at this time.

Your safety is our highest concern and we have robust procedures in place that comply with, or exceed UK government issued guidelines.

Please call 0114 399 5720 or email if you have any queries or concerns.

Please note that on arrival, and any time you are navigating our training centre, a face mask must be worn at all times. We do not require masks to be worn during classes where social distancing can be maintained.


The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance to all of us at IMechE Argyll Ruane. We take this subject very seriously.

To ensure we provide the highest safety standards we have compiled a full set of Safety Guidelines we follow at our Training Centre for both staff and students. Click Here to see these guidelines.

We are continuously monitoring the Government Guidelines to ensure we are complying with these. They are checked on a regular basis. You can find these guidelines here.


To ensure we minimise the risk of Covid-19 at our training centre, we have limited the amount of staff we have on-site each day by adopting a ‘Work from Home’ policy where possible for our staff.
