Reliable and cost effective compared to its competitors, I would have no hesitation in recommending Essential Site Skills as the Training Provider of choice to other organisations who operate within the industry

Byrne Bros. have been working with Essential Site Skills to support our onsite training needs.

Importantly, Essential Site Skills provide a proficient end to end service, tailored to our particular company needs; the level of knowledge about the industry and the efficiency of staff has been excellent. Byrne Bros would highly recommend Essential Site Skills as a training provider.
An enormous help to our business
Essential site skills has been an enormous help to our business. They supply training in a wide variety of areas, including CPCS Crawler Crane which I was struggling to find anywhere else. I can count on them for good availability, and high quality training to be delivered. Catherine personally is a great help to me, always on hand to answer any questions with regards to training and card schemes. I would highly recommend them.
Professional, understanding of requirements and above all deliver excellent training
Essential site skills were able to meet my requirements and provide all the necessary information, course dates which fitted in with my business needs. I would like to thank Alison Fry who was my main contact throughout the process of arranging my courses. I highly recommend Essential site skills and will use them again in the near future.
Excellent “No Fuss” Service
After months of trying to locate a company equipped to deliver the NVQ Level 2 in HDD Directional Drilling, we came across ESS and are so glad we did! The service and professionalism has been brilliant – Natalie the Project Manager made the whole process so easy and Nick the assessor has been a star and made the whole experience for our employees an enormous success. We shall certainly be using them again for this and other training.
OUTSTANDING LEVEL OF SERVICE AND KNOWLEDGE OF THE INDUSTRY
It’s extremely important we have a robust trained emergency rescue team and ESS know how important it is that RAMS reflect reality to your training. To have such a highly qualified trainer provider that you can trust is vital in this industry.
We recently had a site incident that could have resulted in fatality, but due to the outstanding level of training, our newly trained rescue team put Gareth’s extensive teaching methods into practice, leading into a successful rescue operation. Gareth always makes a valuable point that anyone can share knowledge, but if you don’t fully engage with each learner you are putting your employees at risk.
