Our state-of-the-art training centre is located in South Wales; it is easily accessible from all major Welsh locations and is ideal for Bristol based businesses.

From our Wales Training Centre we provide a wide range of training courses, suitable for many different industries. The courses we provide include Confined Space training courses, first aid training courses, IOSH training courses, working at height training courses and Fire Fighting training courses – to name a few.

Our training facilities are high quality and designed to replicate conditions experienced when working in environments like confined spaces. All our courses are taught by highly experience trainers – so you won’t be taught from a textbook and you will not be stuck in a classroom. The majority of our trainers are real-life rescuers, so you can guarantee you’re learning from people with the right experience.

We also deliver a range of practical working at heights courses, including an ECITB approved working safely at height 1 day course. Our working at height facilities include internal and external ladders, hatches, rooftop anchor beams, handrails, slopes, gates and a range of internal furnishings – which allow us to cover a wide range of work applications, for customers in a variety of industrial sectors.

Our trainers use real stories to help demonstrate the importance of all our training courses. We teach practical skills – we want to ensure everything you learn can be put into practice when you return to your employer.

Read Our Reviews

Training was excellent well presented and the practical was very life like. Would recommend using this company.

Nathan Snook, Viridor Polymers

An excellent presentation and training by Gerwyn & Ben last week on our emmisions stack at Vale in Clydach. I felt it was well worthy of a mention. I've worked in industry electrically and mechanically since 1973, also outside of work as a part time retained firefighter. So as you can imagine have attended more safety classes than you shake a stick at. MRS stand out above the rest and far from feeling jaded after all these years I still feel engaged in one of their class. Keep up the good work.

Ian Logan, Vale Europe

Been delegated from my workplace to MRS for past 10 years. Fantastic service and very friendly, professional and knowledgeable staff.

Pawel Pikulski, EnviroWales

Having used MRSL for specialist confined space and first aid training for over 20 years myself personally and now for the staff of my business GMEC Solutions Ltd, I cannot fault the quality of the training they provide and they remain the only provider we will use for this training and the one we would recommend.

Gavin Tuck, GMEC Solutions Ltd
