We provide a range of courses that can be tailored to meet your needs. We can also organise Lantra and NPTC training. If you are looking for a course that is not listed on this page contact us to discuss your requirements.


All courses are run by demand and are dependant on maximum numbers being achieved.


Driving Skills


Our forklift and mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) courses are "in house" Tri-Grain Ltd certified and are delivered by our fully qualified training instructors and assessors.

Training is a legal requirement for forklift, MEWP and ATV operators. Employers should ensure vehicles are only operated by employees who have received appropriate training and assessment. Serious accidents can occur without proper training and it is recommended operators complete a refresher course every three years to keep their skills up to date.
