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,

Having less then 6 months left to serve at the Armour centre in Bovington, Dorset as a Tp Sgt RAC Training Regiment. I hadn’t had a clue on what I wanted to do until I met HL Training at a job fair, after speaking with members of the staff about what they offer I was then convinced that I want to become a forklift instructor, and what better place to do it then HL Training. I then spoke with Angela who helped me out no end with her vast knowledge on ELCAS, she done all relevant paperwork including booking my accommodation. HL Training well, from the on set I felt very much “part of the family” all instructors are outstanding, “even if Aaron is tight about getting the coffee’s in. only joking Aaron its jack really” the best thing about this company is they make you feel at home, nice to see happy friendly faces in the morning and their training was first class. I would definitely recommend this company to all those leaving the services no matter what your skill levels are. Top company, Top instructors, First class help from all members off staff. I would like to thank, Big and Little Vince, Aaron,Jack, Jimmer, and all from the office Mer, Ange and Shane

Thank you all,
Kind regards

Jamie Streets
