What Our Clients Say

“From my time with Scott Lidster I found him to be an expert in his field and extremely proficient grader trainer and from the feedback from our crew's Grader trainers, I felt our training days were successful. In summary, I felt Scott delivered a comprehensive training package that was easy for our operators to understand with a practical application that was thorough and relevant to production mining.'
