A very helpful and supportive company. Ainscough Training Services have supported me through the whole process; from our initial meeting at the TATA Steel Works Job Fair, to introducing me to interview opportunities with a local crane company. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the training centre. I have been able to take advantage of the funding and achieve a CPCS card for Slinger & Mobile Crane and I am now ready to start a new chapter with a career that can effectively support my family.”
A very enjoyable and comprehensive course, the instructor was very easy to listen to and understand. He provided everything I needed.
The course was very thorough, and covered a great deal in such a compacted time frame. It went above and beyond my expectations and conveyed a great deal of the instructors knowledge and experience
Couldn’t be happier with the way Dale handled my NVQ. He was friendly, informative and made me feel confident throughout. Everything was professional without being overly formal.
Steve Turner is a fantastic trainer, who knows cranes and lifting inside out, the pace of the course was spot on. The training facility was modern, warm and very clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend ATSL, I thoroughly enjoyed the course from start to finish, it totally exceeded my expectations.

The course was exceptional, with a trainer who knew what he was talking about, from experience, not just by the text books.
The training is first class along with all the facilities at the location.
