Had an absolutely fantastic day last week at the resin bound training course at Derbyshire Aggregates. I must say that is one of the most in depth courses I have ever been on and literally by the time you leave there is not 1 bit of information missed out. This is by far the best surfacing product the market at the moment and I am looking forward to been able to suggest this to new or existing customers in the future. - HP (Jan 2018)
Found the course very informative and helpful, I am considering a career change and going on this course has been really helpful, Wayne was excellent in his explanations and the set up and location cannot be faulted. I will really be recommending Derbyshire aggregates if asked. Once again thanks. - WT (Feb 2018)

It has been a massive learning curve for myself and the crews and each and every one of us has taken positives out of today’s events. It was presented really well and your workshop ticks all the right boxes. Really impressed with your product and research in all of this. Keep up the good work - LB (Dec 2017)
The training day was definitely an eye-opener. Wayne explained everything in simple terms so everybody could understand the answers to all the questions which myself and others in the group asked him. In all it was a excellent day. Many thanks! - AC (Nov 2017)
