The right tool for a job is a tool used properly


I am an experienced sole trader with over 30 years’ UK and international experience of cranes, forklifts and lifting operations, including military and private crane hire companies before moving full time into training in 2011. Since then, I have been providing bespoke NPORS training and assessments and CPCS training for now fully fledged tradesmen. Whatever your training needs, I can create additional in-house training courses for your individual company requirements. I am also looking to take on international projects again, having already built up extensive experience overseas.


If there’s one reason you need to hire Phill Preece Training, it’s this – the reason I can train to such a high industry-standard is that I have spent over 30 years in the lifting industry, having started in the British Army, so I have gained a wealth of knowledge, then working at several large companies covering a range of machinery before deciding that I could apply this knowledge to training other people. I have unrivalled knowledge and hands-on experience with speciality machines and can help you through its operation. I have a high pass rate relative to other trainers, so ultimately, I give good value for money.
