What our clients say

Home 9 What our clients say
Adrian is a very experienced, knowledgeable and down to earth instructor who has the ability to connect with people on many levels. He has the ability to simplify explanations so people with less experience understand what he is teaching as well as push the knowledge base and skill level of those with more experience. All this is done while maintaining a good team spirit and feel.
He also has a lot of patience and never seems to get flustered no matter how long something takes.
This is the second training session I have been on with Adrian and having attended many similar courses over the past 30 odd years, his is one of the best and one that I would recommend to others.

AVT has been our training and assessment provider for the last two years, so over that time I have learnt a great deal about their abilities and know that they would do well for other organisations if given the opportunity. During the 2 years, we have quite often thrown a curve ball at them and the way in which they deal with it and “just get on with it” is great, many a request for a short notice assignment is never a problem and they have one of the team on their way to help, and it only continues to improve as time goes on. Due to their knowledge and great aptitude around the Transport and Petroleum Industry, AVT would be an excellent candidate for anyone or company looking for these specialised services, and I have no doubts that their abilities and determination will continue to grow.

The spotter and Class 2 assessments were very valuable for our team. They got a lot out of it and have started using some of the generic hand signals that Lenny discussed with them. Lenny was a great assessor, very accommodating, provided a great service and staff felt very comfortable around him. He kept me informed throughout the 4 days which was helpful for me. He also gave [employee] some extra training time so that he could run through a number of things with him which [employee] appreciated. He also held an individual session with the class 2 drivers to go through the log book requirements which is fundamental in our business.

Joanna Jones – Laboratory Manager

Downer (Road Science)

I have done a number of 4WD courses over the years through MPI and these guys put together one of the best courses I have ever participated in. Their delivery is very slick, professional and pitched just at the right level. I had outstanding feedback from all my team that have completed their training so far. They put together a 3 day course that included sand and gravel road driving. The practical training we did they customised for the Fisheries environment we experience down here and again I received excellent feedback from that team around the appropriateness of this customised course. It was also very reasonably priced.

Garreth Jay – Regional Manager – Fisheries Compliance

Ministry for Primary Industries

The valuation team had a half day training with AVT on the use of all wheel drive and four wheel drive vehicles in off road locations. We had a range of vehicles with different capabilities that were all well catered for resulting in a fun and educational  activity for all those involved. I would thoroughly recommend this training for both the safety aspect and the team building enjoyed and I hope to bring back the greater team in the future.

Chris Boyd

Executive Director, Rural & Agricultural Valuation and Advisory Services

We had a great 2 days with you last week. We have had a debrief and out of all the training we have done you have been the best kaiako we have had thus far.

I’ve had really positive feedback from the team on Adrian’s training. The level he pitched the course theory was excellent and practical content was right on expectations for the guys, definitely fit for purpose. We’ll be back in future for our next group session.

Nathaniel Woermann – General Manager

Metro Property Services

Thank you, we have had some great feedback from the course you provided and even comments that it beats other 4WD courses they had been on. So well done to you all.
