    Everyone knows asbestos is dangerous, but there was a lot about the substance and the handling of it that I wasn’t aware of. That’s why, when I wanted to find out more, I decided to take this course. The other reviews were all very positive, the course itself was given the thumbs up by lots of independent professionals and organisations and the content was laid out in such a way that I could easily grasp the points they were making. Within a day or two of passing, I was sent my certificate, a serious qualification that went right into my CV.

    I’ve taken several online courses before, but remain a little wary about them. However, this asbestos course by Training Express was everything I could have asked for. You could tell that a lot of thought and care had gone into designing the course, and thanks to this I never got bored when working my way through the modules. A first time for everything! Passing has given me the confidence I never thought I knew, and I’ve told everyone I know about how superb an experience learning with this provider was.
