Training Coordinator, Leonardo Helicopters

“From my perspective as a Training Co-Ordinator I find that the website is easily accessible and shows, at a glance, those who have not completed their courses. I am also notified immediately via email when a delegate completes and passes the course as I am sent a copy of their certificate. It is immensely helpful…

Learner, Babcock International Group

Installation & Facilities Management, Diamond Light Source

“Brilliant! Feedback was all positive. Trainer up-beat & up-to-date.Delivery using button votes was a great way to check knowledge of candidates and the guys felt they had learnt more than hearing same words from a trainer from previous company. Can’t praise enough. Very positive, enjoyable and picked up a lot of new information as delivery…
