"At Harper Adams University we pride ourselves on being the UK’s premier provider of land-based education. That’s why we choose Lantra for quality assured training and qualifications delivered by our tutors who have vast experience and have been rigorously vetted. This top-quality training is backed up with excellent course materials produced by Lantra and results in highly qualified students who have a recognised qualification that they can be proud of. It also proves to an employer they have received the standard of professional training Harper Adams University insists upon. The Lantra team is always on had with ongoing advice and guidance and I’m confident professional and knowledgeable advice is only a phone call away. It’s this support that has doubtless helped almost double our registrations over the past 12 months."

"In the past I’ve worked in agricultural sectors in the UK, Australia and New Zealand and have lots of experience employing staff for a contracting company. Making the career switch to become a Lantra training instructor was a great move for me. Not only have I followed in my Dad’s footsteps (he was a Lantra instructor), I’ve also been able to use my wealth of industry experience and skills to promote safe practices and the correct ways to operate machinery. Lantra has been very supportive. As a nationally recognised awarding body, the materials Lantra provides are very informative and easy to understand. As an Instructor, I find the training and assessment method Lantra adopts is welcomed by candidates and I’ve had lots of positive feedback on how the Lantra courses are set out.”

Lantra Awards Chainsaw Maintenance & Operation (Cross Cutting)

“It was a valuable learning experience; even if you have used a chainsaw around your personal yard or for work, it doesn't mean you know all the latest safety or maintenance checks, that are needed to be done on a regular basis in order to keep you, others and the saw safe.

“If you’re a beginner, the course teaches you not only the skills and safety requirements needed for basic use, but also to be comfortable using a chainsaw, as well as knowledgeable in all the basic cuts, positioning of the blade to avoid injury to self and others as well as damage to the blade and bar. I'd recommend it for any and everyone who wants to learn how to use and maintain a chainsaw.”

"I have worked with Lantra as a Provider and Instructor for the last 8 years pre-dominantly delivering firearms training to estates across the UK and to private individuals.

"I appreciate the status of Lantra as an awarding body recognized by the land-based sector and the quality assurance which affords credibility to the training delivered and recognized similarly by HSE.

"Support specifically from my area business leader has been especially valued regarding her professional industry and training knowledge; alongside solid business acumen. Clarification of my required input as a Lantra provider and connecting with client base and pushing forward within Lantra has been greatly appreciated. I would certainly recommend a Lantra accreditation to those requiring credible recognized land-based training."
