Just thought I would drop you a quick email to say how much we all enjoyed the course delivered by David on Thursday and Friday. We all learnt a lot and now feel much more confident in our maintenance and use of machinery. My technician Tommy, has been particularly positive about the whole experience so please pass on our thanks to David.

David carried out refresher training for seven of our staff members on our main wood working machines.
Feedback from staff was that he had been thorough, very knowledgeable, and they were surprised by how much they had learned throughout the day. They also enjoyed the experience.

David was a fantastic trainer who has a wealth of knowledge in this area. He is very good at clearly sharing this knowledge and expertise in all areas of workshop practice, in a informative and relevant way. We found this to be one of the most useful CPD sessions we have completed in years!

​"The training our employees received from David was methodical and thorough. The added advantage was that they were being trained in familiar surroundings and on the actual machines they would be using. Most of our employees have had woodworking machine awareness training from David when they start in our woodworking areas. This initial training was the gateway for further learning and skills, promoting confidence and personnel development
