able to raise questions without feeling inadequate or that I was taking other's people
time. However the first part of this course made me appreciate the benefits of learning
in a group and I look forward to another opportunity to do this again when the
circumstances allow (post COVID-19). I was very impressed with the lecturer's
knowledge and his obvious passion about the subject (Health & Safety). It was
highly infectious and I can't recommend it enough!"

We did this online due to C-19 but this was easily adaptable and brought great advantages with group interaction at times using a shared white board.
Neil was a very clear trainer and managed the pace of the day very effectively.
Would highly recommend NTS

Definitely not death by power point and gets everyone involved "

Be nice to have the course face to face but was very convenient over Zoom in the current climate.
"I really enjoyed this course. I have not done ‘Zoom’ style training like this before, and was concerned that I may struggle with focus (I like to be ‘doing’). I was very pleased with the interaction with the Trainer and the other course attendees.
Using question papers and practical activities (which were timed at good points during the course) as well as discussion ensured it wasn’t a passive experience. Neil was engaging and knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. He was also a good listener and encouraged attendees viewpoints and experiences.
I considered this to be a very professional, appropriately paced and well executed course. Thanks Neil!"
