Re: Hi new pdi

Welcome to the forum.

I am sure some others will be along to recomend suitable trainers.

At the moment I am training for part 2 and am training on a pay as you go basis direct with a Ordit registered grade 6 ADI.

There is loads of advice on this forum which I am sure you will find useful (At least I have found it useful)

Best wishes

Re: Hi new pdi

How far North?

There is Nigel Dawson but he is more Midlands and there is Dave Hartley(?) of Dash Driving in Beverley.

Re: Hi new pdi

Only advice I can give from personal experience is to go with an ORDIT registered trainer, I spent a lot of money with a non-ordit trainer and although the training was good, it was, in my opinion not quite at the standard required to become a competent instructor.
You are making a big investment in your future, so you want to get it right at the early stages.

Re: Hi new pdi

Welcome to the forum Cawl
Have a look at LDC based in Pontefract but trainers around the country. Ordit registered of course and various packages available.

Re: Hi new pdi

Hi cawl; I'm with LDC and take a look at the posts by Snaxmuppet who has just started training with them too. He is doing a blog about his training which may give you an insight. I can recommend them for many reasons so if you want to PM me then feel free!

Re: Hi new pdi

I'm back again having been out teaching! As far as I know, all the trainers are with LDC (mine certainly was) and are usually trained by them too. When I trained with them, there was the option of PAYG or the lot up front. Also to consider at some point are the perks regarding training cars and franchise schemes. That's where Snax can probably help you---- I paid up front and bought my own car so I don't know much about the other side of the coin.

Re: Hi new pdi

....As far as I know, all the trainers are with LDC (mine certainly was) and are usually trained by them too....

I was under the impression that the trainers are on a Franchise with LDC (as opposed to employed) as they are with most other organisations so, in that sense, the work is sub contracted out.  BSM used to employ their trainers but I believe that has now changed.  The only company I know employs trainers is TIC.
