"Not only do you get help and support to grow your own business, but you also get a great initial set up and ongoing admin package that you would be hard pushed to match elsewhere.

Operationally if you need people to cover for you, you will be safe in the knowledge that everyone is trained to the same standard and delivers the same content – albeit in their own individual style.

Last but by no means least Phoenix insist on a good standard of compliance from everybody in the important matters of company standards and the authorising bodies criteria".

With the emphasis growing on the importance of Health & Safety in the work environment there has never been a better time to be an industrial trainer and examiner. You don't have to look too far to see a local business operating a forklift truck or other piece of industrial plant equipment. With all the additional courses we offer the opportunity is enormous. 


At Phoenix Industrial Training we can lead you from entry level training right through to expert user qualifications. We specialise in delivering training in a wide range of sectors and below you can see some examples:
