Every person attending a training course completes a questionnaire to give feedback, score the course and to help us improve. We are very proud that we receive the highest level of feedback year upon year.
All standard ConQuest training courses are carried out at our dedicated training centre at our head office in Bolton. Over the years we have found that by removing the learner from their day to day working environment and placing them in a dedicated training centre, with all the correct equipment and training software, it is by far the most effective way of getting users up and running with the ConQuest Software.
Kerry Houghton from Interserve – ”The training was really useful and, despite already having a knowledge of conquest, it really helped with some shortcuts such as the usual suspects lists and how to chase up late quotes etc.
I have also been able to share some of those tips with colleagues”.
Geoff Sheward from Barnwood Construction – ”Thanks for the 2 days at Thremhall Park, both Dylan and I found it very helpful”.
”We both liked your presentation style and pace (keeping Estimators alert and interested in something for 2 whole days is no mean feat) and we thought that the venue was great. Thanks also to the ladies in the café who were fantastic – very efficient, friendly and welcoming”.
Paul Stephens from Chessman – ”Excellent free-flowing course focused on responding to candidate specific questions”
Chris Drew from Interserve Strategic Projects – ”Traditional analytical estimating done on software that works”
Nicola Chalmers from Redpath Construction – ”Steve was an excellent tutor. Good examples and workbooks were given. Very easy to follow”
Rob Fenton from Interserve – ”By the way…10/10 compliments to Steve regarding his software knowledge during our recent training.In spite of being a Conquest user for at least 15 years I picked up quite a few little tips as well as reminders of things I had simply forgotten since we users tend to fall into a routine of using the software in a ‘certain way’ and stick with what’s familiar”.
Stuart Wallace from McLaughlin & Harvey – “Excellent course, very informative. Will save me loads of time on future tenders”
Gerry from Clark Contracts – ”Refreshing to be trained by someone with a wealth of knowledge in both the software and the construction industry”
Joe from Maxi Construction – ”Fantastic course, very helpful moving forward with the software”
Andrew from FK Facades – ”Very good introduction & overview of what ConQuest can offer as a package. Looking forward to using it”
Alan from John Paul Construction – ”The location being so close to the airport was excellent and the facilities were ideal”
George from Willmott Dixon – ”Like a tree of wisdom, fantastic”
Lucy from FM Conway – ”Lovely Venue, Enjoyable Day”
Chris from Clancy Docwra – ”Steve Cook (Trainer) was friendly, formal, precise and concise. The way forward in estimating & enquiries. Very professional”
William from Northstone (NI) Ltd – ”Thremhall Park is an excellent location. Close to the airport & accommodation. Relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff”
Clare from ECL Contracts – ”I will now be able to produce estimates more quickly & accurately”
Alan from Clark Contracts – “Delighted with standard the system can offer. Relevant tuition was clear & concise from a very pleasant trainer, namely Steve. Many thanks.”
Michael from RDF Building – Your hands on approach to showing us where we either could improve or went wrong was, not only very helpful but also very productive. We liked how you worked through the problem and offered a number of solutions.
We also like your intuitive way of casually overseeing how we were applying the newly learned skills without ‘looking over our shoulder’.
It was also a good experience that you took our existing company roles into account whilst completing the course to tailor it to us and make it more useful / personal to each individual on the course (you also did this for others).
Another plus for us was that you took the time, in the downtime between sessions, to get to know us & our companies better and even shared your life experiences whilst offering opinions/solutions to existing quandaries that we had.
