Meet us, Dale and Aga, partners at AD Training Solutions, a small training company founded in 2008. Most of our courses are accredited by Highfield Qualifications and can be found on their website Course Finder Plus /Highfield at https://www.highfieldqualifications.com We offer a selection of courses at different levels, starting with L2 up to L4 in Health and Safety, Food Safety, HACCP as well as L3 courses in Delivering Training, and Education and Training, Effective Auditing and Inspection Skills, Allergens, First Aid at Work, and Emergency First Aid at Work. All of the above qualifications are accredited by Highfield Qualifications and once our candidates have passed the exam, they are awarded with a nationally recognised certificate. In addition, we have on offer a variety of workshops, such as Root Cause analysis, TACCP and VACCP as well as Food Safety Culture at Work that complement our Food Safety, HACCP and Effective Auditing and Inspection Skills courses.
Option 1 Classroom based sessions at our centre in Rotherham Our sessions are run in small groups of 3 learners maximum. During the training, our subject specialist trainer takes learners through an interactive PowerPoint presentation and encourages them to participate actively in the session. Learners are provided with the opportunity to participate in a range of activities, including group discussions, sharing of ideas, and learning from each other. Within most of our courses, we play games, such as ‘card matching’ games that promote teamwork and can make a boring repetition of definitions more appealing and effective. This interactive training allows individuals to build their own knowledge and practical understanding of the subject that hopefully they will be able to use within their work activities.
Option 2 Webinar training through Microsoft Teams or Zoom For those who prefer to learn from a distance, we offer webinars. Learners and the subject specialist trainer use an interactive webinar platform to connect and communicate. As with our face-to-face training, during the webinar, our subject specialist takes learners through an interactive PowerPoint presentation and encourages them to participate actively in the session. Learners are invited to take part in a range of activities, including group discussions, sharing of ideas, and learning from each other.
Option 3 On-site training Some customers prefer the subject specialist trainer to come to them and train a group of people at their premises. We are prepared to travel and deliver the training at prices negotiated to accommodate everyone’s needs. In addition, some customers organise tours around the factory floor or restaurant for the subject specialist trainer , so we can bespoke the training and share our expertise and practical advice in a number of situations and to find better solutions in the training room using on site relevant scenarios.
EXAMS Through our Awarding Organisation Highfield, we offer courses that conclude with an exam, at level 2 and 3 this would be a Multiple-Choice Question paper and at level 4, the candidates will need to answer additional written open questions. Learners who come to our centre or go through face-to-face training can do a paper exam, invigilated by our trainer. Learners who choose to do their exam online, are invigilated by Highfield that are present throughout the online exam using a smart phone camera and your PC to ensure that the exam conditions are met.

"Thank you so much for the training. The guys who attended said it was great and really enjoyed it. They are words I have never heard used about food hygiene training before so that is testimony to your training delivery!"
"I really enjoyed the course I did at ADtraining solutions, it was informative, professional and really easy to understand. I have since had a promotion and I feel that doing this course helped me towards that. Thanks."
"Dale delivered a day's food hygiene training for quite a large group of us at our own premises. His energy and enthusiasm for the subject kept the whole group engaged. He tailored the content and the timing of the training as much as possible to our needs. The group had a very positive experience. I have attended a number of food hygiene training sessions over the years as part of my job and this was certainly the best."
" A.D Training Solutions translated C.O.S.H.H, &Health and Safety and Induction material into Polish for us here at Halifax Hall Hotel, which is part of the University of Sheffield. They made a superb job of all the documents and turned a training problem around for us. Very professional and helpful. Thank you Aga and Dale."
"Just a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed the Food and Hygiene Course delivered by AD Training Solutions. The course delivery was very professional and interactive. We received written guides, demonstrations and audio recordings which contributed to a great learning experience."
"I've completed 5-day Education and Training course with Dale and Aga. I wasn't able to attend 5 consecutive days so Dale scheduled the course to our needs and we've done it over Fridays/Saturdays. Our sessions have been so interesting, with lots of activities scheduled. Dale's knowledge and experience were fantastic. He was very supportive throughout the whole course and Aga gave us lots of excellent tips regarding assignment and other written documentation. I could phone or email them anytime and they were very quick to come back with the answer. Dale is very enthusiastic and professional trainer. I appreciate the most their flexibility and support. I highly recommend Aga and Dale, who will make your training experience exciting and easy! Thank you! Best regards!"
"Thank you for the training provided my staff and myself. The sessions were conducted in a relaxed, clear and concise manor and would not hesitate to recommend your services"
"I recently attended a training course delivered by Dale Slinger of AD Training Solutions. The course was really enjoyable and delivered at a pace that the whole group were able to participate in. Dale was professional, approachable and supportive and funny! Which really did impact on not only the learning but also how much I enjoyed it? Thank you."
"Dale is gifted, creative, resourceful, quick on his feet to change approaches in teaching delivery and design to respond to the needs and abilities of his learners. He takes his teaching responsibilities extremely seriously and has shown great initiative in his delivery for me."
"I have recently completed my level 3 award in Education and Training with Dale at AD Training, I found the whole process to be excellent from start to finish. Dale was great trainer, he was very professional with a good balance of humour to aid my learning. He was always on hand to support and offer guidance through out the course. I would recommend AD Training and Dale to anyone who is thinking of doing any training and I will be looking to complete further courses in the future."
"As a non food supplier to the retail industry we needed an HACCP course more tailored to our products and processes. Dale at AD Training was very accommodating in tailoring the course so much so that not only did he train HACCP level 3 but we put a large group of our team through Food Hygiene level 2 again geared to a non food supplier. From this we have then formed a relationship where AD Training have provided Auditing and Inspection skills training on site as well as staff attending one day training events at their premises. They are very engaging with their us a the client and very professional with the delivery of their service. I would recommend them for training purposes nothing was too much trouble."
"A.D Training Solutions Ltd translated C.O.S.H.H, Health and Safety and Induction material into Polish for us here at Halifax Hall Hotel, which is part of the University of Sheffield. They made a superb job of all the documents and turned a training problem around for us. Very professional and helpful. Thank you Dale and Aga."
"Great service. Took the time to learn about the site, both in terms of type & nature of injuries from accidents, so that the training could be tailored specifically to us. This enabled Dale to focus on ensuring that the first aiders are particularly well versed on the types of injuries that they will be dealing with to ensure that they are prepared for what they have signed up to. I was very happy with the training and would certainly use Dale again. I would highly recommend using Dale for first aid training."
"Dale was a superb tutor. Taking his time to explain all aspects of the course and making it specifically relevant to me and and my experience. After taking his course in food hygiene level 4 , I feel confident in my abilities in safe food handling and management."
