More than 45 people have successfully completed the NEBOSH certificate and 37 have completed the NEBOSH fire safety qualification in the last 12 months.

Rhonda added: “We have built a reputation amongst our clients large and small, in the private and public sector for providing our delegates with the knowledge they need to succeed, and employers with flexible delivery and funding options.

“Capitalising on these successes in 2020, we are growing our offering to include the NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety and the NEBOSH National Certificate in Environmental Management, to prepare both employees and employers with the knowledge and skills to work in all types of settings.”
