Had a great week training for my CS30/31 tickets. Phill is a great instructor, he really knows his stuff and makes everything simple and clear to understand (as well as being incredibly patient!). Demelza is lovely and made the booking process extremely easy for me as I booked on with very short notice. I'll definitely be back for more courses in the future!

3 of our team took part in the 'Manual fed wood chipper' and 'Brush Cutter/trimmer' training. Then another 3 members of the team did refresher training for CS30 and CS31. The course was quick and easy to book and pay for. Demelza was at the end of the phone to answer any/all the questions we had. The training was faultless. We would highly recommend this company and can't wait for the next time we work together.

Being someone of the female pursuasion, an arthritic one at that, I was a little apprehensive to get my chainsaw quals... To say the least.I needn't have been as Phill and Demelza made the whole experience, from first enquiry, through booking, training, and testing so enjoyable, informative and rewarding.I researched provider's and was initially attracted by the course price - important, - and the fact the CS30/31 was combined. Tricky to find elsewhere. I ended up travelling 5 hours to take the course with Lowe Maintenance... So probably paid more in the end, but I'd train with them again, no doubt.They also gave me some help after the course when I was looking for some advice regarding kit.Phill was awesome to learn with and Demelza was awesome to deal with through the whole process.I've already recommended them to my better half and would recommend to anyone looking to get certificated...even if you're a broken girl like me.

I have used Lowe Maintenance Training on a number of occasions for LOLER testing. They are very reasonable on price and have always been very quick in turn around time. Both lovely people who always have time for a chat at the shop. Highly recommended.

Phill is a master when it comes to chainsaws. Anything he doesn't know isn't worth knowing. He made the process so easy to follow and thankfully me and jack passed. Big thanks to tom as well for his help.

Really enjoyed my weeks training I learnt a lot I was great to learn in such a relaxed yet totally professional way Phil certainly knows his stuff, the assessor was also spot on a proper working bloke who put us at ease throughout. I actually feel like I've been trained properly and not just something I've had to do to tick a box I will certainly be back to do my spraying courses in the future thanks a lot Phil and Demelza
