The excavator training I received at M.I construction training was highly informative and helpful in my day to day use of plant. With the professional and friendly staff who trained me I was able to pass my CPCS test and am now able to work on nearly any site. The test ground was also an added bonus as it had a big area for me to train on plant and comfortable classrooms to do the theory training in. The center also kindly gives refreshments free of charge which is another bonus.
I’m thinking of doing another course with them soon.

Their trainers have also provided excellent 1-1 specific and individually tailored training and coaching to staff which was found to be extremely beneficial by both the trainee and our Company
I just wanted to tell you how impressed our guys were with the training delivered here last week.
Justin's delivery was clear and concise and his willingness to answer questions made for a very worthwhile training course. I will have no hesitation recommending your company to the other business managers in our area should the opportunity arise.
