 Some recent feedback from this course

“We both had this buzz of energy and excitement about the course and the future direction of our training.  The teaching methods and theories that we learned….We just did not want the course to end!

Kenny – Safety Professional, Paramedic and Business Owner

“The course was absolutely fantastic! I hammered it out in a day whilst my advisor spaced his out over 3 – 4 sittings. The course was full of useful videos from the trainer, TED Talks, presentations and assessments at the end of each section to verify learning and understanding. The course has inspired me and revived my love for health safety and changing behaviours. I would absolutely recommend this course to anyone who is short of time (and budget) to be away from the office”

Mandy – Safety Professional

“Excellent course all round. Highly recommended to all those who want to make a positive impact in safety”

Lawrence – Front Line Leader
