About Us

Founded in 1995, Ringlink Services is based in Laurencekirk in the north-east of Scotland. From there, our network of experienced and knowledgeable instructors deliver training and assessments throughout the UK.

“Our aim is to enhance and strengthen your workforce  with training that is designed to suit your business,  delivered in an engaging and informative way.”

Ringlink Services was originally formed to satisfy the training and labour requirements for the growing membership of our sister company Ringlink Scotland.

Now with decades of experience as well as Lantra, NPORS and NPTC City & Guilds accreditation, we are proud to be a trusted training provider for council authorities, government bodies and utility companies as well as to individuals looking to acquire new skills or develop their careers.


We have a selection of courses that can be completed online, offering a more flexible and convenient method of learning.

Learn from the comfort of your own office or home at a time that suits you. With no need to travel and few printed materials, this is definitely a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to learn.

We have been working closely with Ringlink for a number of years and have always found their service and attention to be exceptional.

Our Training Facilities

We’ve recently opened a new training and development facility next to our headquarters in Laurencekirk.

Situated next door to the railway station, from here we deliver all agricultural-related and construction-based training, including streetworks, crane operation, and excavation and dumpers.

Chainsaw and arboriculture training is accommodated in a purpose-built workshop. There is also a simulator, designed for introductory training for both agricultural and construction courses: a safe and cost-effective way to develop skills.

The facility is also available for schools and colleges to give students a taste of different industry sectors and learn about the wide range of career opportunities available.


Ringlink has developed a highly successful land-based pre-apprenticeship programme.

The six-month work-based training programme was designed for 16-21 year olds and ran as a three-year pilot.

Funded by Scottish Government and Skills Development Scotland, we were one of the pilot employers (along with Borders Machinery Ring and Tarff Services) and have recruited around 140 young people.

With more than 50% of our pre-apprentices progressing on to Modern Apprenticeships, vocational training and qualifications is one way to source new talent. It also supports more businesses that want to engage and offer apprenticeship opportunities, providing a long-term solution to the skills shortage in the Scottish land-based sector.
