Our training centre is located on Bournemouth Airport, where we have both classroom facilities, plus an impressive purpose-built practical training ground, that can realistically simulate real life site conditions, using our fleet of modern plant machinery. We believe that combining the use of modern technology in the training rooms with hands-on practice is the most effective way to deliver a skilled and safety conscious workforce.
