Pastel training have recently carried out fork lift truck training on site. All my staff who completed the course were very impressed with the knowledge base brought by Paul and Steph and they all agreed the training was delivered in a relaxed enjoyable way.

 I would have no hesitation in recommending Pastel, and I am sure that we shall be using them for future training.

Pastel training have recently taken over our Fork Lift Truck and MEWP training.  They have simplified, what was turning into a complicated task of ensuring refreshers/conversions are carried out to our requirements.  We are really pleased with their friendly, informative and effective approach to training.

The training we received from Pastel was outstanding, Paul our instructor made the whole course enjoyable with his knowledge and sense of humour.  He adapted the course content to fit our specific requirements. A first class job and I would have no hesitation in recommending Pastel to the rest of the reserve forces.  Pastel will now be our preferred training provider.

As a Health and Safety Manger I must ensure my employees are competent and adequately trained in order to carry out their jobs safely and correctly. I originally contacted Pastel to perform Overhead Crane Training. We were so impressed with the training we then booked and have undertaken Fork Lift Truck Training, Manual Handling, CPC, Safe Working at Heights and Harness Safety and Inspection. Next week we are doing Fire Warden Training with them.

We will continue to use and recommend Pastel Training. The standard of training is excellent and the help, support and advice from them is second to none.

Pastel Training deliver well organised, interactive sessions, that even long after they have finished, generate discussion and promote a positive Health & Safety culture in our business.  Striking the balance between ensuring all vital information is put across, yet maintaining a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere is not easy - but Pastel managed this with ease.  Thank you.

We was recommended to contact Pastel Training from a work colleague who previously completed a fork lifting course. From the first conversation we knew Pastel Training would provide us that little extra to other training providers.

We undertook the ‘Emergency First Aid at Work’ course, in which we found the training was delivered fantastically. We completed the course and left feeling we understood a great deal in First Aid.

We are now planning to get other members of our company on the course.

The three forklift operators at Contrac Print & IT Products required refresher training - at short notice, but in a very busy period for the company.Pastel offered a very, flexible "in-warehouse" solution that was highly competitive and ensured less interruption to our business activities. Paul Woodward also gave us valuable advice about ways in which we could finance and use our forklifts more productively.

I contacted several providers but Paul at Pastel gave me the confidence that they would be the right people to provide our training.We found them to be professional from day one and delivered exactly what we required at times to fit around our work schedule.I would happily recommend them to other companies.

Many Thanks

Dennis Distribution have known Paul from Pastel Training for a number of years now, what we like about the company is the more personal touch that can be passed on to the Dennis Distribution staff. All the training can be done on site; this does relax the staff that are having the training, ranging from forklift to Driver CPC or whatever we need as a customer.

Pastel provided us with great training at short notice and with competitive pricing to boot, this made him the perfect choice for our training needs. Paul came to our site and carried out on site training with no impact on the days work. The training was comprehensive and i'm confident that my staff members that received training from him can use the equipment safely and efficiently. Paul has a great practical approach to the health and safety requirements of using the machinery and highlights any potential risks that come from using the machinery. I highly recommend Pastel for your training needs and will not hesitate to use them again myself.
