Well what can I say. I recently completed my counterbalance lift truck qualification with Small training solutions and this being my fourth course with this firm can demonstrate how much I rate them. Every course I have attended with Small training has been excellent. The professionalism that is demonstrated is consistent but at the same time it’s very personal. You can see that Ryan and his team want you to succeed and the training is tailored to the individuals needs whilst maintaining the high standards set by the awarding bodies. A relaxed but professional atmosphere ensures the student is as at ease as he can be at all times. Thank you for another amazing course and I will definitely be back!!!

Ryan is a top guy, I did my counterbalance forklift training with him and tractor and bowser. He has loads of patience and understanding of the training that is needed to get you to pass the training. Recommend to anyone.

Abrasive wheel course was delivered in an ingeniously captivating way. I now understand the importance of not only carrying out a ring test on an abrasive wheel, but insuring bushing's and flanges are not over tightened. All ways read the manufactures data and pay attention to shelf life. Top line.

Doing my counter balance folklift licence training with small training solutions, Ryan Small is an excellent instructor, very patient and willing to go over every steps until you've learnt it properly. He's very laid back but also at the same time he's very professional throughout the training. His courses are welcoming and stress free. Anyone thinking of getting a new licence or needs a refresher course to update their current licecene get in touch with Small Training Solutions. I will be getting in touch with him again to do more courses to further my licences.

Thanks again.

Did my HIAB operator course with this company. From the moment I booked I was given clear deatails/instructions on the course and what I was required to bring with me. Ryan was my instructor very friendly man with a lot of patience helped me out massively as a complete novice having not used any type of crane before. Defiantly recommend them and will be using them in the future for any courses I need.

I have conducted 2 courses with Small training solutions and currently mid way through my third. All I can say is the standard that is practiced is extremely professional but it's also very personal with help and advice always available if needed, no matter how big or small. An excellent company ran by Ryan who is a genuinely nice guy and extremely professional. Thank you for the training so far and look forward to many more courses in the future. *****
