“Best Instructors I’ve Ever Had”.
Martin Russell, CB Novice Course, Instructor Mustafa, December 2022

Absolutely brilliant, found Derek’s teaching skills very helpful. Don’t think I would have passed if it wasn’t for his teaching skills.  Staff was amazing aswell.
Connor Paterson, CB Novice Course, December 2022

Mustafa was very courteous and followed all of the on site requirements at all times.

Training was very good and he clearly has a very good knowledge of both forklift trucks / PPT’s but also how to deliver the training effectively.

When selecting DGC as an approved supplier I had a good feeling from the initial call to the office and reassurance that all our requirements could be met in a timely manner. This was followed up with all requests from site being actioned when requested.

I’m not sure I can suggest any improvements.  Pass on my good wishes and that I thoroughly enjoyed the days training.
