What do our trainees think

PTS Practical Event, Warrington

The trainer had a very thorough knowledge of the subject matter, and was able to back that up with relevant real life examples. Craig was flexible in his approach and willing to go deeper into particular areas if required to ensure understanding. The facilities are good, and the indoor track training area is particularly impressive.

Martin Smith, Carillion Construction Ltd

Very well constructed and delivered, outstanding performance on the trainer's part, both in the classroom and out on the track. I would recommend Archie McNeill to anyone who wishes to learn about overheads - a terrific experience.
