What can I say …… I’m extremely satisfied with the wealth of information that David gave me throughout this course (EWPA YELLOW CARD) through both theoretically and practical parts I could not fault his experience making me feel very comfortable considering I have always had a little problem with heights. I appreciated David’s patience with me and by days end felt extremely confident and safe in operating both the SL and BL. I highly recommend David – Affordable Training for any training and will definitely be back for any refresher courses.

I have only positive words to describe the experience with Affordable Training. Due to a very tight time schedule, it was hard to find any proper company who could help out but David did a great job in that. He was the first one (out of 8) who answered my request (the second person answered 36 hours after him) and he created the most logical order for the training so everything was easy to follow.

Also big thanks to other trainers Mark and Richard, who were great professionals and shared very good tips for better results and also examples to understand the background behind different regulations and rules.

I am very confident when telling that this company is worth the highest grade.

Been meaning to write this for a while so here goes. Completed my HRW course with David a little while ago and i have to say the reason it was interesting and informative was due to the trainer Dave. An all round top bloke and made it fun at the same time. Will definitely recommend. Thanks again mate
