is a class college, and like the saying goes “first impressions are lasting impressions.” The presentation of the course was done in a very professional way and the time schedule was worked out to perfection and allow enough time to asked questions and if I particular portioned need elaboration on. All questions and concerns that arise during the course was handled professionally and answered in a way that was understandable. The course coordinator was really very patient and helpful. The course material covered all facets of Health and Safety that will assist me to perform my duties as our company’s Safety Officer and the facilities was within the standards of a good training environment.
