Company History

Chris Turner Training Services was established in 1994 in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, supplying training and expertise across South Yorkshire and the East Midlands, as well as across the UK.


A full range of courses is available suitable for staff and volunteers involved in care, nursing and residential settings, housing associations, caring charities, social housing groups, local authorities and a wide range of other business and commercial organisations.

Since being founded, training courses have been developed to comply with all current statutory training requirements in the UK, and these are continually revised and updated in line with prevailing legislation and needs.

Bespoke courses can also be developed to specific requirements, and services such as Disability Access Services and Fire Risk Analysis can also be provided.

Our trainers have a wide range of experiences in various industries, along with professional and teaching qualifications, enabling us to offer you expertise, based on a solid background of practical application.


In May 2009, Chris Turner Training Services was acquired by CJ Associates Training Ltd and is now part of The CJ Group. CJ Associates was formed in 1995 to provide short course training in food hygiene – and has since experienced considerable growth.
