I have been working with confined spaces for 22 years and this has been the most professional, useful and relevant course I have attended during that time. I will now be sending my team here in the future.

The course was full of knowledgeable facts about high-risk situations. The trainer, Steve, was very helpful in helping us understand, with a level of humour. Overall, very satisfactory. 10/10.
