They are a credit to your company. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in the future. 
Jonathan Duffield. 

I was a complete novice and had no experience in slinging/signalling and I passed both Slinger tests with no problems at all with Ainscough Training Services.My trainer was excellent at teaching me the information I needed to pass this course for both practical and theory tests, my tester was excellent too; very fair. In my opinion the course was excellent and cannot fault it at all. I would certainly recommend Ainscough to anybody wanting to do the same course I did. Thanks again.
Andrew Blandford.

As always the course was a thoroughly enjoyable and informative experience. I have undergone training at ATSL previously and have always found your staff friendly, knowledgeable and approachable.The training environment is relaxed and welcoming. The Instructors share a wealth of knowledge from personal experience within the lifting industry. Special mentions to Dale who is an A1 trainer and Steve who manages to relax testing candidates with his manner whilst still being rigorous.I would have no hesitation of recommending ATSL to anybody.Im already looking forward to the next time.

Everybody at Ainscough should be proud of what they do as its a very professionally run company.Its not often I cant find some small fault in the way something is delivered to me, be it a pie from Greggs, the sale of my flat or £3600 worth of courses. I can always seem to find something that I could do to make it that little bit better. With Ainscough training Im glad to say everything was delivered as promised. 

As a novice in the Crane industry my training was delivered in a way I could take in a little at a time with more and more slowly added till it all came together before the tests which I was fully ready for (although my nerves were telling me otherwise.)  

Thank you to Joe, Graham, Kenny and Keith for teaching me and helping out with the Slinging and Crane ops and yourself for my initial meeting through to sending my CV to Ainscough Crane Hire. Also the girls in the office for the course admin side of things. Everybody at Ainscough should be proud of what they do as its a very professionally run company. 

Thanks again for everything I will definitely recommend you to anybody leaving the forces or thinking about getting into the industry and I look forward to doing more courses with Ainscough training in the future.

It was clear from early on, that the instructor had in depth knowledge and experience of mobile cranes, and was able to relate the theory to practical examples throughout his working life. I was particularly impressed in the way he was prepared to go the extra distance to ensure that the candidates had a thorough understanding of any particular; subject. This was further supported by the ability to relate to practical studies based to the Ainscough organisation fleet of cranes and competent personnel.All in all it was a very enjoyable week.

I would like to thank all the people at Ainscough Training Services for their help during my AP course. A special thanks goes to my assessor Tim Morgan. Tim was fantastic from the first meeting to the last. Tim was always on the end of the phone or an e-mail and never failed to return a missed call. The help and advice given was excellent. I would highly recommend to anyone who is thinking of doing an AP course to select Ainscough.
