Many thanks to Vince, Vince Snr, Nick, Mur, Shane & Paul for all your support. Highly recommend as a MOD resettlement provider. Great base of knowledge to start my new career path. All the best.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank HL training services for an extremely professional, informative & outstanding delivered Fork Lift Operator Course at 1 RSME, Chatham.
Scott was very patient and has an excellent instructional manor which put all at ease from the start, he provided some great training exercises to bring out the best in his students as well as ensuring all participants were confident in using the vehicle by demonstrating numerous potential scenarios and gave excellent top tips throughout the course.
I have no reservations in recommending this training provider to others
Many thanks to all
Angie and the team truly couldn’t have done anymore to cater for what I wanted, or delivered any higher standard of training.
All I can say is “It was a lucky chat”
From the start HL provided a great service, tailoring a course to suit my needs and when I wished to alter my course requirements! No fuss was made. My course program was changed; emails were sent confirming my amendments.
4 weeks prior to my course commencing I received a detailed learning pack (USB stick in the post and Links via email) all extremely useful information which enabled me to arrive prepared.
The day I arrived I was made to feel welcome, show around the premises; everything I needed to know was explained & then shown from the “fire alarm drill, muster area, rest room, first aid station. Nothing was left to chance. I was then introduced to my instructors.
This I found impressive, it was all achieved in a no fuss professional manner by people “not suits”.
I spent 4 weeks in total at HL, from start to finish my experience was top notch, the booking was easy, HR Department prompt and professional and the Instructors first rate.
The day my course finished the owner and all the instructors individually came to me, wished me well and said “If I needed any help or advice!” Just call.
“How often do you hear that these days?”
In short I highly recommend HL, they are a friendly, professional, family run company with a wealth of industry and training experience.
Thank you HL from a happy customer

Thanks a lot for all the help with my training courses; I enjoyed them, some good banter with a good bunch.

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)
I completed my ITSSAR Forklift instructors course along with, Overhead crane instructor, HIAB Instructor and slinger banksman instructor.
From the outset I knew that the course would not only be very enjoyable but I would receive all the help i needed. Vince, Angie and the boys were excellent instructors and made my time with HL training not only an enjoyable one but one i will remember.
I have not doubt that they will continue to provide excellent resettlement packages to the Armed Forces and a big thankyou for making my transition to civvy street an easy one.

This family run training centre is excellent the staff are very polite will endeavour to to assist in anything requested from the trainee nothing is a problem to them. They are top quality instructors and there for you and to guide you to gain the qualifications you are looking for they cannot do enough for the forces and i would recommend HL Training Services to anyone wanting these qualifications.
HL Training delivered my training in a friendly and pragmatic fashion. I would be happy to recommend them to any Armed Forces personnel about to start their resettlement.
I hope you are all keeping well.
Thank you all,
I arrived my base in Nigeria (city of Port Harcourt) safely yesterday. I appreciate you all for the wonderful service delivery at your centre. It was an impactful experience for me. I must mention particularly that both Vince Sr and Vince Jr went beyond instructing to mentoring us. Your team of instructors including Jacek and James were good team members. The office support team including Maria and Shane were just wonderful and always there for us. I’m set to justify what I have received from your centre.
I send my regards to you all. Keep on with the good work you’ve been doing.
I would like to pass on my thanks to all members of HL Training Services, the professional manner and excellent teaching skills taught by all the staff are truly commendable and have helped in my transition into a new career. I enjoyed all aspects of the courses that I attended, especially the banter between the Military and civilian staff.
I wish all at HL Training Services the best of luck for the future, take care and kind regards.
