The staff were all happy and full of beans. The course was enjoyable and I've learnt a lot from it that I can take out to site next week.The lunch provided was nice too, plenty for everyone. The training centre was easy to find. Thank you for the last 4 days and I can't wait for the NVQ in the coming weeks.
I wasn’t happy with my previous training provider and moved to Ainscough Training Services based on other people’s experience and their reviews. They were very quick and efficient and always keeping me up to date with the progress of the NVQ at all stages. I had a very competent and knowledgeable Assessor and everything was done very well, thank you.

I cannot speak highly enough of Graham, he is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and approachable, always willing to answer questions and give sound advice. Richard the MD took time-out of his busy schedule one Friday morning to provide me with a brief overview of the requirements of the AP NVQ qualification.From initial registration, through induction and beyond. I found the course a most enjoyable experience. Thank you, A most professional approach at all stages.
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.” Scott Ashton
I cannot praise the training centre enough. The facilities were top class. The work the instructors put into the training as a group and individually was phenomenal. All the staff made me feel welcome from the first day I walked through the door. The encouragement I received from Graham, Steve and the crane driver meant a lot to me.
The assessor created a very relaxed and professional atmosphere for the practical and theory assessments. The admin support team provided a very polite, professional and punctual service.
The trainer was very knowledgeable, pulling on his practical experience and sharing with us. It was never too much trouble to go over any points that where not understood. The training venue is excellent with plant and accessories on hand to explain any practical issues
