You can still gain your personal licence with ABV.

In light of the on-going situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided to postpone our face-to-face courses. However, you can still complete your training and gain your qualification with a fully online experience. Choose your course from the selection below, and we will do the rest.

Introduction

abv training – a division of CPL Learning is committed to providing the best possible service that we can. We recognise that sometimes customers will feel that they have cause to complain about the service they have received.

We encourage all feedback from customers, including complaints, and have developed a Complaints Policy and an associated Complaints Procedure. Our Complaints Policy explains our broad approach to handling all complaints. Our Complaints Procedure provides clear information on how individual complaints will be handled.

Reports relating to complaints will be responded to in accordance with our Policies and Procedures. If you are not satisfied with the way we have handled your complaint, this will be dealt with as a failure of service under the terms of our Complaints Policy.

Aims

abv training aims to resolve complaints quickly, fairly and effectively. We will:

  • Aim to put things right quickly for our customers when they go wrong
  • Keep our customers informed of the progress of their complaint and the results of any investigation
  • Seek to learn from each complaint to improve future performance
  • Set performance targets for responding to complaints and monitor our performance against these targets
  • Advise our customers of their right to appeal if they remain dissatisfied after their complaint has been through all stages of the internal Complaints Procedure

Implementation

abv training Complaints Policy and associated Procedure will be readily available to customers. Together, they detail how to make a complaint and the timescales for a response from abv training.

What is a complaint?

A complaint is when a customer tells us that they are not happy with something that we have done or not done, and we have not put things right.

Who is a customer?

A customer is anyone who contacts abv training to request a service, or is in receipt of a service.

How can a complaint be made?

Any customer wishing to make a complaint can do so, by phone, e-mail, website or letter.

What is the process for making a complaint?

The process for making a complaint is detailed in the Complaints Procedure. This is a single document for use by abv training's colleagues and customers.

Equality & Diversity

Customers have a right to express dissatisfaction with the services they receive from abv training. Customers using this policy can expect to be treated fairly and without discrimination.

The Company has an Equality & Diversity Policy that covers all aspects of equality.

Procedure

If you are unhappy with the service provided by abv training - whether it is the learning experience, assessment, the support you are receiving or about staff or the organisation itself - we promise to take your complaint seriously and treat it as confidential. We also aim to resolve your complaint as speedily as possible.

If you have a complaint about any decision that we have made that affects you, for example, if you feel that you have received the wrong grade for an assessment, or you disagree with an examination result, you should use the relevant awarding organisation’s appeals procedures, which we can advise you on. For all other issues and grievances, use this Complaints Procedure.

We are always pleased to receive compliments and complaints because they help us improve the service we provide, both for you and other learners. We're also interested in your ideas for improving our services. We use the information you give only to improve things. Passing on personal information about you is protected by the Data Protection Act.

If you want to complain, here's what you can do:

It helps if you complain straight away to the people involved, as they may be able to put things right immediately. You should make your complaint within 3 months of the event or problem occurring. At any stage, you can register a formal complaint by telephone, website, letter, or email. Give as much information as you can, including times, dates, places and names. Contact abv training on Tel: 0151 647 1057, email: enquiries@cpllearning.com or write to us at Bridge Court, 110 Canning Street, Birkenhead, CH41 1EW. You will get a first response within one week of receipt of your complaint, and a further response within four weeks.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of your complaint you can appeal the outcome.
