Course feedback

It's made me more aware of the dangers of working at height and all the precautions and planning out you should do beforehand to minimise any risks!

Joshua Gray - Plumber

Keyplan Engineering Ltd

Thank you for the brilliant course you provided for us yesterday. It was very well presented and well received by all attending Officers. It is quite rare to receive such a high quality professional course and therefore it needs mentioning.

It was clearly evident you possess a vast amount of theoretical and practical knowledge on the subject with all up to date information available.

I would not hesitate to recommend this course to anybody in need of this certification.

Gave me a much wider knowledge of my chosen trade and opened my eyes to the little things. Highly recommended, Alan my trainer was very attentive and stopped to make sure I got it and understood.
