What Our Customers Say

Phoenix Training Limited has provided expert training in pedestrian and forklift operation, along with training on various MEWP’s for a number of years at a very reasonable cost without any reduction in the quality of the training. The instructors are always helpful and informative with all the trainees and the support from the backroom staff is always helpful and accommodating to meet our needs at REHAU Ltd with assisting use comply with PUWER regulations.


Colin D

Engineering Manager REHAU Limited

Phoenix Training have provided our plant equipment training for many years covering Forklift’s, Electric Overhead Cranes and Mobile Elevated Work Platforms which we use as part of working within the marine engineering sector.  I’ve found Phoenix’s courses to be detailed, well run and communicated in a practical way that takes account of our work and working processes so the trainees can apply the information and instruction received to their workplace and environment.   More recently we’ve worked with Phoenix to find solutions to more complex refresher training issues involving a very specialist 100 Tonne Mobile Straddle Carrier Boat Hoist.  Roger was able to source specifically skilled individuals through his network to meet what was a difficult training requirement on a fairly unique machine.  This training was further expanded from operator refresher to include supervision and management requirements, communication,  planning, control and workplace segregation of from other work activities.    I can recommend the courses I’ve been involved with as an efficient way of ensuring our staff remain trained, competent and safe which can be demonstrated and certified to meet legal obligations.

Holyhead Marine Services Ltd

Phoenix Industrial Training has delivered training initially in Wales and then out to the rest of the UK and Ireland support centres and reginal bases delivering training and refreshers to over 70 members of staff on a new starter and refresher basis. Roger and his team have always given a professional and high level of service from training to support advice and administration, and from this high standard and friendly training we have also had some additional training other than the basic qualification.

Stephen S

Divisional Maintenance Manager / West


We have worked with Phoenix Industrial Training for over 15 years at the KK Fine Foods LTD site in Deeside North Wales Phoenix provide all our Fork Truck and MEWP and Supervisor plant safety Training courses here on site as and when required.


I find Phoenix to a great company to work with, we have never been disappointed or let down they will go the extra mile to provide what we ask for and work around the times we allocate to them. In recent times we have had Manual handling training course delivered by Roger Howarth who has trained myself to become an approved site Manual handling trainer.


We have always had a good working relationship with Roger and the team and often ask for their advice regarding any safety concerns whether it is to do with Workplace transport or any other workplace health and safety concerns we may have and they are always happy to help and give good accurate advice and support.
