When conducting feedback with clients on how BB Training Services is doing what keeps coming back is we treat everyone with respect and deliver the courses at a pace that suit’s each person’s learning capabilities.  

Our courses are flexible so we can focus on a trainees needs. Trainees enjoy the relaxed and stress free approach to teaching the basics and then moving on to the more advanced parts of the course. We are dedicated to help each trainee achieve the knowledge and skill levels required to operate a forklift in a safe and productive manner  

It’s important to us that each trainee enjoys the experience, and on successful completion of the course, has the confidence and enthusiasm to use go forward with their new skill set.

If we need to spend an extra hour or two to get the required result, we will. That extends to making sure that everyone receives on going help, advice and support if required.

20+ years experience of forklift trucks means that we have seen every problem relating to operating forklift trucks. That experience feeds in to our training so companies sending staff and those receiving the training can be confident that our training is thorough and realistic.  

Bobby Brown Training Services brings 12 years experience as an instructor and examiner.  

BB Training Services was founded 5 years ago and over the last five years the company has grown based on referrals from delighted clients. Once clients are on board the majority retain BB Training Services as there preferred provider for forklift truck training, and that is how we want to keep growing our business.

How did you get in to forklift training?

I was working in a warehousing / forklift environment and enjoyed the challenge of operating a wide variety of different types of trucks over the years.

On one occasion when attending a refresher course, another trainee was having difficulty in learning how to reverse a forklift. He was three days into his training and almost ready to quit through stress (if he was concerned if he did not pass he would lose his job).

During the lunch break I showed him a few tips and within 30 minutes he had mastered reversing.

He was very relived and suggested that forklift training was something I should seriously consider.

The satisfaction in seeing him go on to pass his test first time was immense.

Since then, I have trained and tested more than 2,000 trainees and still get the same level of satisfaction and pride in my work as day I was able to help the first time.
