    Our occupational health training courses are delivered across the UK, allowing our expertise and knowledge to be accessible to everyone. 

    Each course combines both theoretical and practical sessions, providing delegates with the knowledge to understand the ‘why’ and the ‘how’ and to apply what they have learnt. 

    Our classroom courses are also a great way for delegates to meet other people within the same profession, away from the distractions and pressures of the working environment.

  • In-company training

    If you have a number of delegates who require the same training, we can visit your organisation and deliver the course at a time and place to suit your needs.

    This is an effective way of training several delegates at the same time, saving on time, travel and accommodation expenses, whilst also ensuring less disruption for day-to-day work activities.

    Our expert tutors will take the time to understand your organisation’s learning needs to provide a bespoke training solution that satisfies your business objectives. For more information on in-company training, please contact us.
