I have had 9 years training from MRS and always find the staff helpful and understanding. The facilities they use are excellent including the practical part of the confined space which I found was like a real life situation and what to expect in an emergency. WELL RECOMMENDED.

Fantastic venue for our confined space training, from the reception staff at arrival to the experience and professionalism of the trainer - this is a great facility.
