Fforest Timber Engineering Limited has used the training services of Coleg Sir Gar for a number of years for the development of our employees and management. The training that Coleg Sir Gar provides is a mixture of theory and useful practical exercises.

Through Coleg Sir Gar, Fforest Timber Engineering Limited has developed an on-going training strategy and because of this our employees have completed training and have gained ILM qualifications in Team Leading, Health & Safety Awareness for own Self and Others, Managing Resources, Innovation, how to Develop Productive Working Relationships with Colleagues also, Communication Skills as well as other ILM qualifications. Fforest Timber Engineering Limited has also used Coleg Sir Gar for training our staff through various other courses ranging from NVQ’s relevant to our company’s own manufacturing processes to City & Guilds qualification in the Inspection and Testing of Electrical Equipment.

We also use their service for CSCS Card testing for our on-site teams of timber frame erectors and labourers. Some of our employees have been with us since leaving school with no qualifications and they have been inspired by the training offered to them and they take pride in the certificates and qualifications they have achieved.

Fforest Timber Engineering Limited has developed a good relationship with the lecturers at Coleg Sir Gar who seem to have interesting insights into current best industry practices, they are also very knowledgeable, accessible and easy to talk to and we would recommend them to any company looking to invest in the professional and personal development of anyone employed within their organisation.

The trainer was excellent! I can't remember a time when a provider has received such positive feedback and from a couple that aren't always forthcoming with praise.
