Attended a 5 day SMSTS course in Bristol. Karl the instructor was very knowledgable and a fantastic tutour, one of the best courses I have ever attended.
Our trainer was Tony roy, The course does cover a vast area of health and safety, but at the end of the 5 day course, you know a lot more than when you started. The training was entertaining but educational at the same time, and I'm a great believer in fun while you learn (more memorable) great course. Andy C.
