Summer Recess

We are taking a summer recess this year during July and August. Please contact the office by email if possible as we will continue to monitor our inboxes, we just may not be available by phone, except on our mobiles in an emergency. Cathie will be enjoying a long break in France, and hopefully, Louise will be moving house! We will also be working on our next season schedule adding dates for our regular courses through to next summer. Sadly I think some costs will rise from September to cover increased travel costs (among other things). Please do still get in touch if you have an urgent training need or a new enquiry for September onwards.  The best email to get in touch with us both is info@ekt.uk.com 

Best wishes, Louise & Cathie

We can deliver ROLO Health, Safety and Environmental Awareness courses. The next one with space is 3rd August online. Follow the link to look at other course dates - ROLO Course dates Online and Classroom

Bespoke courses cost less than you think. Do contact us if there is training you want but don't see here. We run courses in small groups, using your machinery (if applicable) and your premises. It can be very cost effective, even if you only have 3 or 4 candidates. 

Did you know that we provide Lantra's 'E-Learning' online learning resources? You can now buy and pay for online learning from this website!

What we can do for you...

The aim of East Kent Training is to provide quality, cost-effective training to rural businesses, including farmers, riding stables, kennels, grounds persons, golf courses and to all businesses in Kent who would like a personal one-stop shop approach to training, assessment and certification.

We have facilities for workshop or classroom based, and chainsaw training in East and West Kent, and will also utlise customer sites to provide in-company and open courses in forklift and pesticides among others.

We are a Lantra Registered training provider, but can also arrange assessment for NPTC (National Proficiency Test Council), ITSSAR or NPORS (National Plant Operators Registration Scheme). Our first aid courses are HSE approved.

Through our links with other training providers we are able to help with most training needs, for example hazardous plants, trailer training and scaffold inspection training ......... the list is endless, please do contact us if there is something you would like to discuss. We will do our best to help.

What our customers are saying ....

"We were lucky enough to have Gary as our trainer. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, he takes time to explain things until we all understood. He is encouraging and I enjoyed every minute of my time on his course"
