Nicholas Kelly BSc(Hons) MRICS FAAV - Estate Property Manager
"The efficient, effective and flexible approach to meeting the varied training needs of our staff on the Lulworth Estate by Lesley and her team has been first class"
Reuben Hawkwood - Head Ranger-Brownsea Island
"……………….We here at the National Trust on Brownsea Island are very happy with the service provided by Newlands Training. They went to great lengths to fit in a training programme round our specific requirements – taking into account our boats, getting trainers over here, restrictions in machinery use due to our SSSI status, etc and were extremely professional throughout the whole process. The trainers were of very high quality and put all trainees at ease, getting over all the information in a relaxed environment. They were also more than happy to use our equipment in the state it is maintained. I would not hesitate to use Newlands Training again………………"
"I felt welcome, safe and able to ask questions without hesitation. The Trainer’s experience showed through his work, which made me feel reassured and more confident. I have had a wonderful experience and look forward to future courses."
Kirsten Light - Lulworth Estate Sites Ranger
"I thought my chainsaw course was brilliant, really well taught. I felt the trainer put me at ease and was very thorough. I am now much more confident, especially with my felling cuts."
Jo Ferris - Lulworth Estate Countryside Ranger
"Although pesticides are not a huge part of my daily work they can play an important role in habitat management on the Lulworth Estate. As part of my PA1 and PA6W courses I learnt the safe way to use them. The course was very thorough and I felt well equipped to undertake both the assessment and to use them in the workplace. The set up at Newlands is excellent, the training areas are great, well equipped and well heated (important in the winter!) and Lesley and her team are always helpful and accommodating. Newlands is our team’s first choice for training."
Jenny Goy - RSPB Dorset Administrator
"The RSPB in Dorset regularly attends training courses organised by Newlands Training. Our Ecological Services team need to ensure staff are trained to the highest standards for our conservation management services, using equipment such as chainsaw, tractor and associated machinery, and we have always received an excellent service and the best quality trainers from Newlands."
Simon Woodall - Grounds Supervisor, Borough of Poole
"Five members of my staff recently attended your strimmer & brushcutter course delivered at our premises. The course was thorough, delivered at the right pace and held the guys interest all day. Although each delegate had different levels of experience in operating strimmers all came away at the end of the day saying they had learnt lots and the course had been very beneficial.
Newlands Training have been delivering First Aid Training for my team for the last 5 years. Rob Hamilton always turns what can be a fairly dry subject into a stimulating, informative days course."
Demelza Hyde - Volunteer Coordinator, Dorset Countryside Ranger Service
"The Lantra Chainsaw training has really helped our Dorset County Council Trainee Rangers gain the experience and confidence to use a chainsaw safely and competently. The atmosphere and expertise of the trainers at Newlands Training was excellent."
Albert Cooper - Cemeteries Supervisor, Environmental Health & Consumer Services
"As a Department of Bournemouth Borough Council we have used Newlands Training Ltd. since June 2010, after a colleague in the Parks department recommended them to me. So far, we have used them for Pole Saw and Wood Chipper courses but would not hesitate to use them for any other training needs that may arise. They have been extremely helpful in their flexible approach and have provided courses that have enabled to date a 100% pass rate for every candidate who has been involved. I have every confidence in recommending Newlands training as their courses and service have proved to have been to the highest standard in my experience."
"I have used Newlands Training on a few occasions in 2011/12 for Chainsaw training. I have always found them helpful and cost effective. Delegates that have received initial chainsaw training have achieved the desired NPTC certification."
Simon Ratcliff - Deputy Town Clerk, Lyme Regis Town Council
"Lyme Regis Town Council has used Newlands Training for a number of courses over recent years including Chainsaw, Ride on Mowers, Pesticides and Abrasive Wheels. On each occasion the courses have been well organised and have been presented by effective and knowledgeable trainers. The organisation and support provided by Newlands is first class."
Sheila Headon - Training Co-ordinator, A National Charity
"I would like to say that you have been a pleasure to work with – helpful and patient in equal measure. Your advice has been very much appreciated as well. The trainers you have provided have all been well thought of and the training has been enjoyed."

"An excellent course, sensibly managed with considerable common sense"
