CILT has worked with Simon and VTT to accredit and certify their training programme and to promote the fact that this programme meets certain Key Knowledge Areas of CILT’s Charter. It is professional and extremely well run and we are very happy to endorse the quality and content

“We always believed that the VTT training programme was an excellent idea, but Simon has surpassed all our expectations. The extensive training along with his Safe Systems of Work and his excellent approach with the delivery of the programme has had a huge positive impact on our drivers. Beamish Transport Ltd is looking forward to working alongside Simon and VTT for many years to come”

On meeting with Simon I was immediately impressed with his level of knowledge & professionalism, having worked within the industry for a considerable number of years, he has significant understanding of car transportation gained not only from the driver perspective in the practical sense but also from the managerial side, having sat both behind the wheel & at a transport managers desk previously. This makes him unique as a trainer & enables him to hold a greater rapport with drivers, whilst understanding my needs as a transport manager.
Training is delivered professionally, thoroughly & fulfils all necessary requirements to enable a driver to carry out his role safely, efficiently & legally.
Driver reports supplied are clear, concise & honest, giving me the tools to be able to manage my drivers & address any shortfalls in performance as soon as they are identified.
It makes a pleasant change for my drivers to be undergoing CPC training “hands on” rather than attending a classroom based session covering a multitude of irrelevant topics unrelated to their role, Simons’ approach makes perfect sense and adds real value to the training experience, & I have received positive feedback from my drivers to this effect.
VTT provide a good fit for the needs of Aston Barclay, it is hoped that our working relationship will continue well into the future, the type of training supplied by Simon represents incredible value in this ever more regulated & legislated industry.

“An excellent service was provided by VTT in the training of one of our drivers to the standard of Driver Trainer. Simon assembled a comprehensive training programme and documentation, incorporating Safe Systems of Work and Risk Assessments, dedicated to the Transporter industry.
We would not have any hesitation in using VTT services again in the future”
Jerry Linden Ball – General Manager – Cars 2 Deliver
“Having known Simon for many years from his previous employment, I was more than intrigued to see what VTT was all about. On his initial visit I was very sceptical as to what anyone could show or teach my drivers who have been doing the job for many years, and to be honest I did give him a hard time. However, he did persevere and we booked his services, and to give credit where credit is due, all of my drivers have benefited. He has shown every driver a different and better way of operating the transporter safely, even if it is just to add an additional diverter to a strap. I believe the money investing in the training will benefit vehicle carriers going forward, and Simon will be the first call when we employ new drivers”
