I recently attended an Asbestos Awareness course ran by Phil and I must say it exceeded my expectations. I learned a great deal about ACM's, its history, and how to manage it etc. Having been in the USA for 8 years it was great to come back and see huge progress in this area. I will be recommending this course delivery to all of my team.

I have dealt with the company for many years during which time they have provided us with an excellent service in the areas of Health and Safety and Plant Training. The trainers are well qualified, the centre is accredited and they offer guidance and support before and after the training event. Being familiar with our work and our premises and having built up a partnership over time, the company are the perfect training provider for us. Their training expertise is well documented and reliable. I can confidently recommend as a solid and reliable supplier, and experts in their field.

Everything from my initial enquiry to the booking has been dealt with professionally and every member of the team I have spoken with has been very friendly and have gone over and above to meet my training needs.
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 and we intend to carry on using their services in the future. Many thanks for making the very complicated training programme a success.

We have been using the company for over 5 years now.; initially they delivered Over Head Crane Training and Abrasive Wheels. We found their office staff very knowledgeable and helpful when deciding which training courses would best suit our needs and requirements. They are always able to deliver on-site training and often at short notice. Their trainers are very competent in their field and this is reflected in the standard of output by the workforce. Since then we have arranged numerous other training courses including Train the Trainer which has been valuable to our business needs. I would have no hesitation when recommending them to an organisation looking for a solid, all round training provider.
