About us

Specialist Civil Engineering, Land-based and Agricultural independent training provider.

We pride ourselves on our high quality resources which have been developed to ensure you or your workforce receive thorough training and assessing. These resources will give you and your employees’ confidence that the qualification received has been earned and holds value.  We do this by working with the most rigorous and highly respected qualification awarding bodies such as CPCS, City and Guilds and CSkills.

Support for these great qualifications is held in our training rooms, inside our converted hamstone barns. Situated on a working Somerset farm, the old charm and modern teaching technology, including interactive whiteboards, makes for a positive and practical learning environment.

Our dedicated plant training field has level ground for excavating, inclines for manoeuvring, a designated lifting area with simulated trenches, and simulated scaffold tower for Telescopic Handlers, etc. Our Confined Spaces training area consists of a network of concrete tunnels with 4 metre drops and real manholes, ladders and step irons, etc.  A mock cul-de-sac road makes up our Street Works training facility with Sign Lighting and Guarding carried out on a live public road.
