CPD Training Testimonials

Hi Dean,Many thanks for your patience and providing quality and informative coaching which resulted in me achieving a grade A pass for my recent ADI standards check. With your help and tips I felt confident and well equipped to take the test.Sharon Harding ADI 2015

Hi Dean,

I found Inspire's sign Language course to be both educational and highly enjoyable. It was delivered in a very relaxed and fun enviroment which enabled me to learn a lot about the language of signing within a few hours. I would highly recommend Dean's training to anyone. "Inspire" certainly lived up to its name!

Hi Dean

The Sign Language course was amazing, even though it was just half a day I learned so much and its opened my eyes to what I am able to do and has made me want to take it to a much higher level, thank you so much.

Hi Dean

I thought you might appreciate some feedback following the recent course I attended, conducted by Dave Thackwray. The course was very well conducted, Informative and delivered at a pace I could easily cope with.

I found the hard copies of the course material which Dave supplied and the power point presentation material used very informative and helpful. The in car assessment was realistic and gave me a good insight into what to expect on the day of my check test.

I would struggle to come up with any suggestions of ways that the course could be improved on-it was just what I wanted on the day and frankly having known Dave on a professional level for some 12 years I didn't expect any less.

I think the cost of your course was excellent value for money and I am at a loss to undersatnd why more ADI's didn't attend. I have already arranged future coaching when my check test is due.

Dear Dean,

ref Dave thackwray,

I would like to comment and thankyou for your excellent check test training preperation,I was contacted at short notice and Inspire was highly recommended by a fellow ADI.Having decided to give Inspire the opportunity to help,I soon realised it was a great decision.The training was well structured to my needs and more importantly the students needs.I would strongly recommend Inspire to any ADI.I received a grade 5 and as this was my first check test I was extremely pleased.Mr Garety the SEADI commented on my lesson plan and delivery which was all down to your expert coaching.I will be in touch very soon for some of your CPD courses.Many thanks to yourself and Inspire Driver Training and Development.

Hi Dean,before I forget about the new experience Iv'e just had with the driving lesson Iv'e just given three hours after we parted ways today,I felt I had to share this with you.Iv'e never felt this motivated or interested in my job as an ADI in literally years,After taking what Iv'e learnt in 5 hours of coaching and utilising the skills in my last lesson,well lets just say the outcome was better than good.Don't want to go on,however even my partner noticed my enthusiasm which is a one off as I never bring my work home.Thanks again Dean and I look forward to the rest of my Fleet course with Inspire.

Paul-Fleet Diploma Course 2010

I was a police sergeant in charge of Cumbria Police Driver Training until a little over two years ago and I have given countless presentations myself to numerous bodies and organisations and therefore feel somewhat qualified to make comment and give you feedback. Have no doubt, if I thought your performance was poor, then I would state that!

As a driver trainer I simply have to inform you that found your presentation to be excellent, both in terms of content, communication, interest and sheer professionalism and I know that my views are widely shared among other members of Carlisle ADI Association.

I have just completed a Fleet Training course with Dean Henson of Inspire.Dean delivered the course in a focused,systematic and logical order,working hard to build confidence and knowledge in equal measure.he was professional,patient and friendly at all times and his advice and training throughout the coursewas excellent,making the course both an enjoyable and successful experience.
