About us

Crestmoor Training was founded in 2014 on the back of the success of Crestmoor Construction. Today Crestmoor Training sits within the Group of Companies alongside the construction and design, and Plant Hire in which have been formed since 2001 and 2012.

Training quickly became a part of Crestmoor as the numbers started to grow and a need was established to develop a training arm to the business. Along with supplying a wealth of courses to internally train our staff to awarding body standards, we train externally providing a number of accredited courses and in house qualifications at our scenic high class training venue, alternatively if requirements are met we can train at your site.
