Counterbalance Refresher Course,
December 2022 with Instructor Derek

I actually arrived at site at the same time as Mustafa so introduced myself around 0820 outside the building. (sign written van helped) We had a quick introduction and started training about 0830 working on until just after 1600.

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.
