Testimonials

I am writing to express our whole-hearted gratitude for the hospitality you Company provided on the recent High Risk Confined Space and Rescue course.  The professionalism and patience shown from the initial interest to final booking was very much appreciated.  The extra time put in by Expedient was certainly worthwhile and hopefully provided the foundations for a continual business association.  It was a privilege for our team to work with such a dedicated civilian company who tailored the course to suit our needs. Such service and rapport builds great working relationships, I will certainly be recommending Expedient for any similar training requirements through my Chain of Command.

M.o.D

The Confined Space course that myself and my colleagues attended at your training centre was very well received by all, we found it well delivered and the practical sessions were especially pertinent to our future operational duties. During the course the trainer took the time to review the method and risk assessments I had written for the job we were soon to start. On our first entry into a real life confined space all the training delivered by Expedient Training came into play all too soon as we had a real life emergency evacuation. We realised from that point on the value of good training.

Claire and all her team, in particular Maria, made our annual training event a success. Delivering 15 different courses , over 2 weeks for 21 staff is a huge task. No request was too difficult and all our training aims and objectives for this year were met. The feedback from our staff has been all positive. This has been the fourth successful year of training with Expedient and we intend to carry on using their services in the future. Many thanks for making the very complicated training programme a success.
