It's a dark winters night and our Service and Repair Manager, Ross, has just arrived home after a hard day fixing machines and doing things Service and Repair managers do.

OKAY, so not the kind of training shown above, but implimenting a successful training system for your staff can feel like such a pain! One issue is that it doesn't come cheap!
