Occasionally, our standard course packages may not meet your specific requirements but it can be possible to provide a specially tailored course by combining individual training modules.

It wasn’t so long ago that I was doing my own Resettlement Training, and with over forty years of military service behind me I am enthusiastic about having an opportunity to be associated with a company which specialise in providing first-rate Resettlement opportunities to Service leavers.
We enjoy the opportunity to discuss at length Resettlement Training and visitors to our Training Centres are most welcome – we’ll provide a mug of something hot and a bite to eat. A chance to view the facilities and accommodation, meet the staff and say hello fellow leavers who have already chosen Red Rose gives a valuable insight into the process. It really does help.
Thanks for taking the time to visit our website, and I hope that we may be of service to you in the future.
If you need any advice whatsoever on any aspect of Resettlement – from Jobs to Courses, Accommodation to Licences, etc, etc, please don’t hesitate to call, we’re here to help.

360/180 Excavator Training
Excavators are used many different jobs and their size, weight and power make it essential that these machines are operated by accredited personnel who have successfully completed an appropriate 180 or 360 excavator training course.
Our approved Courses will enable successful candidates to:
Lorry Loaders (HIAB)
A lorry loader (Hiab) is a Hydraulic powered articulating crane which fits directly onto the chassis of the lorry. A large number of lorries and trucks now have some form of Lorry Loader for ensuring the lorry’s ability to unload without the need for additional lifting equipment.
Accredited lorry loader (Hiab) training ensures that operators are fully qualified to operate a Hiab and are aware of the daily maintenance and checks that are necessary to ensure their safe operation.
A telescopic handler, or tele-handler as it is more commonly known, is a machine widely used in the building industry. It looks like a forklift truck but it is more like a crane than forklift, with the addition of a telescopic boom that can extend forwards and upwards from the vehicle. On the end of the boom the operator can fit one of several attachments, such as a bucket, pallet forks, muck grab, or lift table.
The most common attachment for a telehandler is pallet forks and the most common application is to move loads to and from places unreachable for a conventional forklift. For example, telehandlers have the ability to remove palletized cargo from within a trailer and to place loads on rooftops and other high places. The latter application would otherwise require a crane, which is not always practical or time-efficient.
A very important site machine, widely used in Agriculture as well as Construction, this is a very valuable licence which adds some diversity to a CV.
Forward Tipping Dumper Training Course
The importance of this licence cannot be overstated, whilst the big three of excavators and tele-handler are certainly where the money is, the humble dumper is more often than not the key to the door.
This is the licence that will get a driver onto a site.
Why? Well, imagine the thoughts of the foreman as he considers if he will hire a complete novice for perhaps a few quid less or an experienced man. He doesn’t know either candidate, but he does know for sure that one of them won’t wreck his machine and the job will get done quickly – no contest, old hand hired.
Imagine now that you’re a dumper driver and you’ve been on site for a month. The foreman has had a chance to see that you’re good at what you do, you arrive on time, you’re willing and able. You’ll probably by this time have jumped on a machine to lend a hand or moved it around. You might even have bought him a beer after work. The foreman was young once, you’ve now got as good a chance or better than a stranger or someone who wants more money than you’ll take to start with. Very handy, the Dumper Ticket, very handy indeed.
