RESUMPTION OF TRAINING NEWS
It has been quite a year! We sincerely hope that you and
yours are safe and well.
We at Simply the Best are looking to cautiously resume training as safely and securely as
possible for all concerned, and the covid crisis has allowed us to rethink and re-engineer
processes, and to make us think radically about our way forward, but we are still
committed to our name, wanting to deliver the best possible training to match our client’s
individual needs.
So – We Won’t Make a Drama out of a Crisis ………….

First- Course Prices.
We have kept our prices the same since 2015. This year in March we
were going to review all prices, had prepared costing spreadsheets,
produce a new ready Reckoner, but in July 2020 we have decided to
rip them up. Yes we have extra costs, yes we have increasing
overheads, but doesn’t everyone? We decided to turn it on its head,
for every negative, we were determined to find the positives, and so
have decided to do something new and radical.
As remote online training is not feasible
for courses such as chainsaws, tractors, etc, We now need
to run courses with smaller numbers, or even 1-1, because
of coronavirus and social distancing, but we can now turn
that to a positive, as we have a new flexibility process, We
won’t bore you with details, but less numbers for some
courses can mean shorter time. Also, because so many of
our Lantra courses have an element of H&S that is common to many machinery courses,
we can take the opportunity to “Bundle” courses when clients require several courses to
avoid repetition, maximising training time on practical parts. We also have a few tricks up
our sleeve, *ahem, in development for some of our traditional classroom courses.

So ……. Drum roll…….. here it is:-
The Simply PQ : Personalised Quote
Tell us what you want, for how many, and we will send a PQ.
In reality, it is a bespoke quote for 1-1, or for 2, or more- It is
like having a private course., we will endeavour to pack in
as much content in a shorter length of time at a reasonable
price. Having 1-1 or 2 on a course or a course bundle means that the course can run
quickly to your timetable as we are not waiting for places to be filled as we used to do
when running Open courses. You are then not mixing with “unknowns”. We think that COULD BE A WIN:WIN

We are coming out of Covid 19 hibernation- slowly and cautiously……..

Well what a year it has been ! The word that is over used but relevant is UNPRECEDENTED !

WE ARE RESUMING TRAINING ACTIVITIES with safety paramount, so generally smaller numbers on courses, social distancing , hand sanitiser etc. Take a look……
