The Trainer was a fantastic communicator. Very clear and precise in how he presents and projects himself.

Everything was explained clearly, I knew what was asked of me and understood what was expected from me during the training. Armed with the knowledge from Trainer and into the pit of death AKA ‘the theory test’ with Owen smith, my nerves just wouldn’t settle. Owen is a cool calm guy obviously used to sleep deprived novices that stayed up all night studying. He really helped with his calm and to the point demeanour that helped me to focus. Dave and Keith the two Crane Operators I came across on the course where great to get along with and made the experience even more friendlier.

The practical assessor was fair in his assessment and again a warm reception that just helped to settle my nerves and helped me to focus with the task’s. Along with getting on with the Managing Director it was clear that Ainscough Training set the example for how a company should be set up.I really enjoyed my time learning and all the staff I interacted with are a credit to the company, especially the Chef’ who catered to my vegetarian diet exotically well. I want to pursue future training and I want it to be with Ainscough Training due to this experience. Hopefully one day in the future I could also be a happy and proud employee of a company such as Ainscough Training.

Hi Richard, I have been in touch with Steve Barnes recently about how he got on with you doing his Lift Supervisor NVQ. As you may remember, we switched him from a course he was doing with another supplier  actually already based on our previous experience of you being reliable and reputable at supporting the men in getting through it. He has asked me to put together a letter (or email!) of thanks to you, saying that his tutor, Joe, couldnt have been more helpful. Steve said the sessions he had with Joe were time efficient and didnt prevent him from doing his day job, he was clear on what he had to do, and the whole thing was a good learning experience from start to finish.

It is really tough for our men to do their day job, pass an NVQ and then apply it, and it is equally hard for me to try and juggle the front office work with men, NVQs, touch screen tests, card applications and life generally, so when we have a company that the men enjoy working with, are efficient and reliable and support me by owning the whole process from start to finish it really makes things much easier. So on behalf of both myself and Steve, thank you and would you please pass Steves thanks on to Joe.

Kind regards

Esther Hardie

Can I just say a massive thanks to Gary Waddoups who was the instructor on the AP course. It was excellently presented. Gary made every effort to ensure everyone understood the course content at all times. It is one of the best courses  ever done. Thanks Gary.

I would also like to say a big thank you to Steve Turner who was our invigilator for the test on the Friday. Steve has a great calming influence which is welcomed when doing the examinations. He was very helpful and he took the time on the Sunday to phone me to let me know I had passed the course which was really appreciated. Many thanks Steve.

It was another example of the great level of service/training you offer at Ainscough. The training facilities are absolutely fantastic the best seen and the atmosphere and attitude of everyone at Ainscough training is brilliant. Everyone I met was really helpful and friendly. A fantastic set up you have at Ainscough training from facility to staff.

I really cant say enough great things about Ainscough training and thank you all for making the training experience an enjoyable one. I look forward to completing my NVQ with Ainscough Training”.
Best Regards

I have never been to a  friendlier and more welcoming training centre; the instructor was humorous with a broad knowledge of the subject. A very clean, comfortable venue with a friendly helpful and professional approach, I would definitely recommend Ainscough Training Services.

Joe Lawrence was very informative, was clear and concise as well as being friendly and approachable. He did his best to fit in around our busy schedules without intruding into daily issues. Supported us at all times. More than helpful. Always polite , a good asset to yourselves without a doubt.

Craig Williams

I found the Assessor Joe Lawrence to be very helpful and easy to talk to and he put me at ease when doing the assessment, the first of this type I had done. I felt that the whole process was painless with Ainscough I would use you again for any further training I needed.

I’ve done my Appointed person training , crane supervisor testing & my NVQ level 5 diploma with Ainscough Training Services.

From start to finish & beyond the training company are by far the most professional & efficient I’ve experienced, I can honestly say you’re trained & tested by the most professional instructors/testers in the crane industry All support staff go above & beyond & also genuinely care about the students getting the best training & support in achieving the NVQ & achieving their qualifications.

I’ve started my own company on the back of my own experience & also of an excellent foundation of knowledge & training from Ainscough Training Services.

Thank you.

The instructor (Gary) was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He presented the training material very well. The classroom was pleasant along with the whole building and the hospitality of everybody at the training centre. All in all a good experience and a big thank you to Gary for his training and getting me through the week and achieving a pass result.

Gareth Williams

I thought the course was brilliant and everyone that was at the centre was helpful, please can you pass my thanks onto Steve turner, as without his help I wouldnt have been able to pass, and can you please thank Paul Dunn as well, he made me feel relaxed and in control of both off my tests.

All in all both instructors where absolutely brilliant. Couldn’t have been happier with the outcome and I will definitely recommend yourselves to anyone who asks. Again can you please pass on my thanks to all in your team.

Many thanks

I would just like to say a big thank you to all at Ainscough Training Services. From our very first phone call back in May and to everyone from my first day at training. The service you have provided has been second to none. You restored my confidence after a bad experience with another service provider.

A big thank you to Steve and Keith for their excellent input and ideas in training and also Graham for his calming influence in my practical exam. They are a credit to your company.

I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in the future.
