The managing working at height training that I received, was delivered well, professionally with personal accounts which made the course fly by.

I felt that the course was a balanced approach to the kind of contractors that do work at our depot as I only held the working at height training. Thank you for the knowledge that was supplied to me by the tutor whom I felt carried out the course in a professional approach.
