Who We Are
Specialist Training and Consultancy Services was formed in 1999 by five training professionals with backgrounds in the Transport, Dangerous Goods and Warehousing Industries.
Based initially in Accrington’s business hub at the Globe Centre, it soon outgrew the facilities available and moved to its current purpose built premises at Altham, Lancashire. As of 1st March 2020 we will also have sites based in Warrington and Wakefield. The Altham location however serves as the head office and main training centre for the Company. Although the Company headquarters are in Lancashire, much of its business now involves serving customers nationally at a variety of locations around the country and abroad.
Our client base ranges from small, one person operations up to blue chip companies with an international reputation. All our customers get the same first rate service….. that’s why they keep coming back! We are still serving many of the customers we did in our first year in business and a high proportion of our key customers have been using Specialist’s services for well over twenty years. We always try and add value to a customer’s business in whatever way we can and wherever possible be the “one stop shop” for our customer’s training needs.
Of course, customer service is one thing, but it counts for little if it is not backed up by professional expertise. We invest heavily in training and developing our staff which means that we have one of the most knowledgeable and up to date teams of trainers and consultants in the Industry. This means we are always industry leading, always ahead of our competitors and always delivering the best service to our clients.
All of our courses are Regulatory based within the industries we serve such as Fork Lift Truck, First Aid and Fire in the Warehousing and Manufacturing sectors to the Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road, Sea and Air for the Freight Forwarding and Transport sectors. In addition to these we are also a significant provider of the Driver CPC Regulation affecting all professional drivers both freight and passenger.
Our Consultancy expertise in the Regulations associated to Healthcare Waste and Dangerous Goods have taken our services further afield working in new markets such as the public sector.
