Fantastic service from the time of booking to the completion of the course.
The Instructors are professional, passionate and excellent communicators. The course was run at the right
pace and Roy was excellent; he explained everything really well. Andy, the Tester had a very calming influence
and eased my nerves during both the theory and practical test.

“The trainer Duncan Cunningham was a credit to your company; he made 5 days enjoyable and knowledgeable. His tutoring made it easy.
All 8 of us on course were of the same opinion.
The training facility is the cleanest and best facility I’ve ever come across. Everyone involved should take a bow. Everything you are doing is correct and I look forward to my next training at your facility”.

I travelled to Leyland from Weston-super-Mare based on recommendations that I received and am very pleased I did so. I will be returning for another course soon:
Dear Rich, I just wanted to thank you again for all the help and support that the team at Ainscough Training provided during my 8-day Mobile Crane Course.I had a fantastic time and Owen was exceptional. He was extremely knowledgeable but his relaxed (but professional) teaching style made it very easy for me to understand and absorb the information. The facilities at your training centre were excellent, the offices were very modern and clean, the mobile cranes were in great shape and the lunches were superb. The staff there were unlike any I have encountered before. They were all so friendly but more than that, they were passionate about me passing my course and genuinely wanted to help in any way they could. They made me feel at home and the fact I felt so relaxed during my visits definitely helped me gain this qualification. As I mentioned to you, I traveled to Leyland from Weston-super-Mare based on recommendations that I received and am very pleased I did so. I will be returning for another course soon. Thanks for everything!

Thank you to David Munroe for his great feedback to the team:”I would like to say a big thank you to the team at Ainscough Training for making my training a delight to do & also for teaching an old dog new tricks!
On every course I have attended in Leyland, each Instructor & Examiner have taught me things that once used in the workplace, will make my job a lot easier.
Big thanks go to Duncan Cunningham for getting me through my AP course, Thanks to Owen Smith for getting me through my Slinger/Signaller course, a massive thanks to Dale Hoggan for dragging me through my Crane Op course & also my AP NVQ….I didn’t make it easy for him with my paperwork….and also thanks to Steve Turner. He was great at calming any exam nerves I had. And last but not least, thanks to Keith Jolly for the patience he showed whilst operating the Crane, & also for the little tips he gave me.
Once again Christine, thank you for everything & best wishes to everyone at Ainscough Training”.
Kind regards, David Munroe

” I just wanted to drop a quick email to say I successfully completed my AP course last week and to pass on thanks to Mike and Duncan at Leyland.
I was very new to the world of lift planning and I thought the course was a great intro to the subject. Feedback from other candidates suggested that the questions weren’t hard enough, but as a beginner and in a mixed level/experience class, I thought they were appropriate and provided a good insight into different types of lifts and a variety of issues that have to be managed.
Both Mike and Duncan were really great and I don’t think I’d have been successful without their training. The detailed feedback I received on my practical assessment will also help me in future”.
