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.

I would like to thank Ainscough and in particular Steve Turner for providing an exceptional course.

His classroom manner was very professional, welcoming and friendly. I found that the scenarios that Steve took the class through prepared us not only for our practical assessment but provided a valuable reference for planning lifts outside of this course.

Steve’s relaxed and helpful approach put everyone at ease creating a natural learning environment. I will recommend Ainscough and Steve Turner to my colleagues and friends looking at becoming an Appointed Person.

Many Thanks

My Assessor Danny was very helpful and professional. I had more than enough time to gather all my evidence together to submit. Whenever I needed any advice or information Danny was very helpful and answered all my queries. The booking process was really simple and easy to understand

The customer service was very professional.

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.

Kind regards

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.
