Hi Angie
Would you thank Scott for us he did a superb job with us and will definitely use you both again Many Thanks

I, 24504848 Warrant Officer Class II (WO2) ‘Taff’ Samuel am nearly at the end of my army career after 33yrs and 9 months and had to start my resettlement time and bursaries to set myself up for ‘civvy’ street.

I was interested in doing a few Forklift (FLT) driver qualifications and was advised by a serving army mate to visit the HL Training Services website as it had a great selection of FLT packages and they were also accredited with the ELCAS system.

As well as the Counterbalance, Reach and Lorry Loader training courses I wanted to do, they also had a FLT Instructor package that incorporated all 3 of them and the added bonus of being either an RTITB or ITSAR certified instructor; all within the £2000 ELCAS bursary.

Getting booked on the course and initiating the ELCAS paperwork was made so easy by Angela, mum Hueston, as she was so friendly, helpful and knew the MOD system off pat.

The course itself was also made enjoyable as it is a family run business with a huge family feel to it, with all the instructors and employees happy to assist you at all times, not to mention the 1st Class instruction given.

I honestly felt part of HLTS on the course and everyone was willing to give their time to ensure I was ready and capable of getting to the standards for all the exams. I would more than recommend HLTS for anyone who wants to get a FLT qualification.

P.S. Maria-Jayne makes cracking Easter biscuits. (Okay, this bit can be deleted and she can’t hit me for calling her by her REAL name)
