Thank you Chris Baker for all the training you have given me from the start of my RRV Course. Made up that I got you as a trainer for my tandem lift course. Couldn’t ask for anyone better, good understanding of all the topics I have done so far. Future is looking bright. Would 100% highly recommend you to anyone who need any training courses doing. Will definitely go back with Doctore On Track Training Services Ltd for any future training.
