Both myself and a colleague were sent down for the in house lift truck instructor course by our employers (A major oil and gas service provider based in Aberdeen). John and Andy provided a great 5 day course. They were very friendly and easy to get along with. I would recommend no other training centre if asked.


I recently completed my In House Instructors course with AFT. From start to finish all the staff were friendly, approachable and enthusiastic, this married with their outstanding knowledge of the subject made for a most rewarding week. A well appointed training facility with excellent service and training. I would not hesitate to recommend Alba to anyone considering using them for any of their training needs. Many thanks to all.
