We provide a complete solution and specialise in the training of quality lift industry funded improvers. If you need lift mates or lift improvers for short term lift modernisation or lift installation projects with the added flexibility of employing them permanently, then we can find quality staff through our Government funded lift engineer training courses. Ideal for lift employers who want to remain in complete control and to outsource the payroll burden, while assessing the suitability of each applicant.

Training Centre Direct are lift industry experts and have been running and delivering lift engineering accredited training courses since 2006. We have also placed dozens of new mates & improvers into lift firms since 2013 where we provided an outsourced payroll service. Take one of our quality and carefully selected new lift engineering improvers into your lift company and benefit from our funded training course. We can even run their payroll and invoice you weekly for short term assignments or you can employ directly and take them off our hands permanently.

Our Temp to Perm solution is the most popular meaning that you stay in complete control where you can have a longer settling in period before taking them on yourself, if needed.

Over 150 local and national employers have all benefited from this unique approach with the added benefit of a network of stakeholders/sponsors providing additional support.
