Staff Training

We believe that our training and development programme sets us apart from our competitors. Whilst others seek the minimum in terms of education, and do not always attain qualifications of any kind, we strive for the maximum in terms of both.

We do not simply settle for Hoist manufacturer training. We deliver, in-house, Hoist Installer NVQ’s to the highest achievable level of expertise to our Installers and Technicians. Investing in 2 of our own fully certified NVQ Assessors bears testament to this. We then supplement this very important foundation with manufacturer training, CITB training, IOSH training, safety critical occupational health assessment, work at height training,  and courses such as rescue from height, first aid, crane operation, mental health, asbestos, in-house topical training and many others besides.
We strongly believe that this approach to the development of our employees ensures that our clients enjoy both a service and a product that can be matched by few. We expect our clients to have high expectations of us, and thoroughly enjoy meeting such expectations on a regular basis.
Our extensive, time served experience in our specialist field has afforded us the ability to constantly evolve and consistently raise the bar. Our skills, knowledge, experience, professionalism and commitment have led us to national and international recognition.
The training of all staff is assessed through the use of a Training Matrix.
