Sorry, Gra, doesn't say it all at all. I've heard similar story's over the years and the only "CPCS trainer" I know of that couldn't operate turned out not to be a CPCS trainer. I have no axe to grind for or against any of these organisations, apart from expense, but in my experience to become a boney fido CPCS trainer this side of the country is not easy, and definitely isn't cheap. I've met over a dozen trainers and assessors and every one could operate. It seems a bit of bad luck coming across three at once Who can’t operate.
