About Us

Our Mission

To be your optimal choice partner for professional training solutions.


Back in 1973, our company founder David Sibbald, an excavator owner-operator saw a space in the market, hiring out plant machinery to the construction industry.  Sibbald Plant Hire prospered and grew over the years until in 1988, David expanded the business into the construction industry training space, training plant operators for the new CTA scheme. The astronomical success of Sibbald Training has seen the company grow year-on-year adding forklift training for the warehouse and logistics industry, health and safety and management training and picking up a host of accreditations along the way to becoming one of the UK’s leading training and assessment solutions providers.
