Friendberry was established in 1981 and has been offering a wide range of commercial transport training courses since then. We have not just been set up to fulfil the recent training requirements.
We set up as a result of needing the Operator CPC and not being able to find suitable training to meet our needs.
The name ‘Friendberry’ is an off the shelf company and our intention was to the change the name once we got going. However, the name became well known within a short space of time and so we kept it.
All our staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable – we have all taken and passed the Operator CPC and as a result we understand what students face. We have a wealth of experience within the transport field. Our lecturers either have a teaching background, a DVSA background or transport management background.
Friendberry offer a comprehensive range of training for the transport industry including Operator CPC for transport management – both passenger and freight, periodic Driver CPC, ADR Carriage of Dangerous Goods, Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA), CPC Refresher and O Licence Awareness Training (OLAT).
We are also able to organise manual handling, digital tachograph and hazard awareness training as and when required. Friendberry can offer training on site, at a local venue or we can come to you. We can tailor the training to suit the requirements of the customer or the individual candidate.
Friendberry write, produce and distribute training material including manuals, audio, video and PowerPoint presentations. Moving with the times, we now have the audio and video elements available loaded on to a USB stick.
We are also one of the few companies in the country approved to run ADR courses for Explosives and Radioactives
We are able to assist with specific learning needs and offer one-on-one training accordingly.
In the past, Friendberry have held courses in Russia, ran regular operator CPC courses in Holland and we have produced French Operator CPC training material.
We pride ourselves in delivering the best training that we can, with excellent pass rates, in well equipped classrooms surrounded by beautiful countryside. We are based in a rural area and so lack the distractions of urban life – this goes a long way to assisting the learning process. As you can see from our website home page, we are based in Somerset, have an on site classroom with plenty of free parking.
We fully embrace the latest technology and our website offers a secure method of payment. However, if you prefer the personal touch, then feel free to give us a call. We answer our calls, there is no computer system to go through.
At Friendberry, we conform with the Data Protection Act and have registered with the Information Communication’s Office (ICO) accordingly – registration number Z7469510. We also have been granted a licence by the Copyright Licensing Authority to use the relevant transport documents.
We also take and process card payments via the telephone and we can confirm that Friendberry are PCI Compliant.
Organizing your training has never been easier.
