Operating from Ipswich in Suffolk, High Five offers a nationwide training service specialising in high quality operator training for end users together with sales skills training for dealers and manufacturers.

High Five Training offers LANTRA and NPTC certification for mowers, tractors, brushcutters, hedgecutters, blower and vacuums as well as sit-in and sit astride ATVs.

Mitchell worked for Ransomes Jacobsen for over 35 years, for the last 8 years running the operator training section.

"Training should be enjoyable, as well as educational", says Ian, "and I work hard to make the Operator training fun, as well as covering all the hazards associated with machinery operation.

"When it comes to sales training, I have 30 years' experience, selling and supporting turf machinery worldwide, working through dealers and distributors. I have worked extensively in Australia, Asia Pacific, Africa, Middle East, as well as Europe. And, of course, I am LANTRA and NPTC accredited."

As well as bespoke training course to suit customers' needs and requirements, High Five Training also undertakes Train the Trainer, BAGMA installation training, sales skills, territory management and customer handling training for both dealer and manufacturer.
