“Brilliant course, very relevant to what we do. I would strongly recommend this training to other areas of our business. All aspects were beneficial”
Jon Buckle, Bosch Thermotechnology
Trainer was obviously very experienced and after the initial reaction from some of our older members of staff of “another course? we know all about gas safety” it was pleasing to see that the same people found the course very interesting and also felt they had learned something – thank you.
NDT Co-coordinator, QA Weld Tech Ltd
