“Had a really fantastic 4 days doing my counterbalance course with Andy, the training was really great, very in-depth and the fact that it was done where I work made it so much more easier for me to feel confident to carry out my job.”

Lewis CorfieldBTS Fabrications Ltd - Newton Aycliffe, 9th November 2017

“Thank you for being very patient with me this week. Learning the forklifts was very hard with the language but you really made things easy for me to understand.”

Natalia KoszkowskaSimply Thankyou Ltd – Darlington, 29th November 2017

“I have just gone through a 4-day Counterbalance Novice Course with Andy. The course started with theory where he made it very easy to understand by explaining things clearly. Practical training was very good and he was very professional and patient with us. Now looking forward to doing Reach Course.”

Adam TwidaleFrutarom UK Ltd

“Enjoyed the course very much, Instructor very helpful and professional. The course was very easy to understand.”

Mark KitchingPremo Fabrications Ltd

“Andy was a very competent instructor who was straight to the point and gave great constructive advice. For me Andy’s No1 priority was to ensure that I was a good operator and capable to do the job, not just slap a certificate into my hand and taking the money.”

Ryan ChapmanBurts Carpets

“This is the second time our company has used AR Training to carry out forklift training and its the first time that I personally have been trained by Andrew. The instructions were very clear and Andy was very professional.”

Benjamin LakeySimply Thankyou Ltd – Darlington, 04th November 2017

“I have just started at George Allinson Transport after a illness. They have taken me on as a forklift operator but it has been years since I last used one. What a shock I got when I started the course, I didn’t know so much had changed. Andy really helped me to be confident to operate a forklift in my new job.”

David AttkinsonGeorge Allinson Transport Ltd – Darlington, 22nd August 2017

“The course was delivered really well, on previous forklift courses the training has been really poor. Andy gives full explanations on what is required during the course as well as total support, this made me feel at ease therefore I believe I got more out of this course then from what I had previously done.”

Tony RobbinsVet UK Ltd – Thirsk – 06th September 2017

“Andy was very approachable and helpful”

Beanies the Flavor Company – Darlington – 12th May 2017

“I found AR Training by chance and after a bit of researching, with only good feedback, I decided to give him a try for our Scissor Lift training. The training was very professional and to a much higher standard than we had received from our usual training providers. I would highly recommend AR Training and am planning on using AR Training for all our training needs in the future.”

Neil SorrieWarehouse Team Leader - Cod Beck Blenders Ltd Dalton, Thirsk 5th November 2017

“Completed Side Loader training today with Andy. We are really happy with the forklift training that he has delivered to the guys over the last couple weeks. We started using AR Training this year to do Overhead Crane, Slinging and Banksman training due to a recommendation from our health and safety consultants.”

Jonathan CoatesSupervisor, WT Fabrications Ltd – Stockton-on-Tees – 13th July 2017

“The Overhead Crane training today was good; Andy explained in detail the problems that can happen when lifting different pieces of equipment. The stuff that we need to lift is really difficult at times as it is machinery and trying to find where to lift from without damaging it can be hard.”

Alex JohnsonPerry Process Ltd, Newton Aycliffe – 29th March 2017

“The training received was great especially as we were a group of 3 people. There was plenty of patience and support from our instructor Andy and I never felt rushed or pressured. Overall a great learning experience and now I feel confident to operate the forklift truck. Many thanks Andy.”

Jamie LawleySam Turner & Sons

“The forklift course was really good and informative. The points were put across in a way that we all understood. Our instructor Andy was always supportive towards us giving us helpful tips on how to do things easier. I would highly recommend people using Andy to train them as he always put the points across well and helped us to become forklift operators. ”

Christopher FortuneSam Turner & Sons

“This is the first time I have used this type of equipment, the course went very well apart from the truck breaking down. The length of time that the instruction took was about right for me to feel confident to operate the crane and sling the various tanks that we use.”

Kieran MuttonAtlantis Tanks Group Ltd

“I have attended a number of training courses over the years and I can honestly say this is the first time I have been made to actually work to pass it. Normally you go on a course and it’s a guaranteed that you will pass it. Andy certainly isn’t like that, he will help and advise you but in the end he will make you sit the tests and you have to pass them properly. I actually felt that I learnt something today. Thanks for all the help.”

Thomas SturdyWT Fabrications Ltd

“I found the right balance of learning and practicable skills during the course to keep me on the right wavelength to absorb the skills I need to operate the forklift safely. I found Andy to be consistently friendly and helpful but would also correct me when I made mistakes.”

Raymond TrainorFactory Manager, Gressingham Game Ltd

“Andy was very professional in delivering the course and where he felt parts needed more work he would concentrate on those areas. Andy took his time and explained everything to us ensuring that we understood, I felt really at ease being trained by Andy.”

Stephen SmithMachine Operator, Durham Box Ltd

“Fantastic training, very professional and friendly trainer”

Richard DunnOperator, Durham Box Ltd

“Really good and in-depth course. We did a lot of practical training so really feel confident to operate the truck.”
