  • Thanks for all your help in arranging my COMPEX refresher course, it was much appreciated.

    I’d like to send positive feedback to the trainers in the classroom and the practical assessments.

    Their intimate knowledge of the course materials, and practical knowledge related to practicalities in actual work situations was first rate.

    They provided excellent support on a quite intensive short course covering the wide range of topics that lie within the course remit.

    These assessments can be extremely nerve wracking for attendees who will not be used to classroom or examination situations, and the chaps provided great reassurance/support and guidance in these respects.
