Excellent training on the IOSH managing safely course. Jason was great and ensures you have the underpinning knowledge to complete the exam. Been here quite a few times before and its always great training.

Truly excellent training centre, I pass my personal thanks to Dave Halliday. A very professional and knowledgeable trainer, who keeps blokes who normally work outside, from falling asleep in a classroom. 100% recommended to anyone looking for this type of training course.
