What training and from where please?

Hi there guys, it'll start warming up soon I'm sure. Then no one will be around to answer my ongoing questions ;-)

I think I'm now convinced that a franchise is not for me. I have a fair amount of business and gardening experience. I'll take my P1 and P6 training through the local college. However I'd like to find out what training I can get elsewhere and what might be worthwhile. I've seen a couple of comments on here about businesses in this market also providing training. Can you point me in the right direction please

    what business are you looking to start?

    So should I just repeat what's already been said?

      No need for you to repeat whats been said already Andrew as I have that information already. What I'm hoping for is more information on other training providers other than the two that were mentioned previously and are a really long way from where I'm based. Maybe there is nothing else out there but as my previous question was in a different forum I felt this topic was better suited to this group. Thanks for you comments though

        Apart from the two local Agri Colleges (Winchester & Guildford) as discussed who provide short duration training (as well as full / part time 2-3yr courses) there are a number of independent training organizations around that provide Lantra/C&G assessed training. This can either be for statutory or skills based training. I'm heavily involved in one of them, so do not use my position to promote them on LJN.

          Can I mention the training centre I went to Gary? I'm going to try and get back there this year to do a couple more courses as It was super, relaxed and the training was second to none...

            I have no vested interest in this Centre haha, other than to recommending how great it was for me...

              Absolutely, go for it - there's no problem with members recommending good training providers...But as I'm involved with one, it would not be correct for me to push them. Just being transparent :)

    Cool, John Tangye, Littlefield Manor Training, was a super place to train, so relaxed yet professional at the same time, will try to post a link here.   http://www.tangyemachinerytraining.co.uk

      John's set up is excellent, great location and lovely Tudor Manor house setting. Some of my guys have been there for multiple courses. They also do/did B&B on site.

      A +1 from me.
