Feedback from previous learners

‘The course was taught well & Pete has extensive knowledge on all material. All the information learnt will help improve my job performance & this has made me more aware of health & safety & protocol being fresh out of university. I liked Pete’s sense of humour which made the study environment very easy to learn from. The puzzles to test my knowledge were also helpful.’ Stephanie, December 2019′

‘Very enjoyable course. It has extended my knowledge so I can apply it to my job role and Pete’s knowledge made the course.’ Ester, June 2019.

‘As part of my job I come across a variety of hazards & this course will help me be better aware of those hazards & what control measures should be in place.
