Morning gang, hope you are all well.

I would like to say a big thanks to all at H.L. Training for the help and guidance. You are a very special bunch of people, not many of us left these days.

Things are starting to move along, I have been in touch with local training providers and have made some significant progress with my presentations etc. We have more viewers for the house this Wednesday, from Bristol would you believe so fingers crossed.

I have contacted Martin Webber from ITSSAR and requested the specific expectations required to become a Cat 2 instructor, watch this space.

I will keep you all informed of any developments as and when they happen.

Speak soon,

Finally after 5 weeks I have time to sit down and reflect my time training in Bristol with HL Training. After a 35+ years career in HM Forces on retiring I was at a crossroads in my life really had no idea what to do with myself, a friend suggested Forklift Instructing as an option. So I began to research Companies, assured of ELCAS funding I set out to find a provider and sent emails to a number of Companies throughout the UK. Only a few bothered to reply but I was impressed by the speed and the amount of info supplied by HL and Angela in particular who took the time and trouble to ring me. So armed with the info I needed I chose to train with HL in Bristol, probably as far from home as I could get but they gave me that warm feeling. My feelings were right, HL are a family run Company who make all who train with them feel part of the family. The level of instruction is first class, the instructors show patience and willing, to help you in every area. I can't recommend the Company enough and will always be grateful for their help and assistance in helping me in my newly chosen career, which to date has been extremely busy. HL Training gave me the skills which I know pass on to others.
