The employees said in general the overall course was well presented.  The tutor went into great depth and had a good knowledge of the subject.  They deal with confined spaces on a regular basis so having trained personnel is a major safety saver.

There was a lot of useful information taken away from this 2 day course.  I feel I have much more knowledge of scaffolding and safety.

I was very pleased with the service from initial enquiry to course delivery.  It was so simple to book via e-mail with very helpful and up to date information.  Our employee found the training very interesting and it was presented in a simple manner.

It is fantastic having a local training provider.  In the past our employees have had to travel to Cheshire and with overnight accommodation to pay for on top of the cost of the course!

Thank you for straight forward, simple booking, delivery of the course and a certificate!

C & G Confined Spaces (Medium Risk)

"It was very good to be able to discuss in open forum, and refresh areas of concern and access all aspects of requirements".

​I found the 5 day SMSTS course very useful for my role as Site Agent. It was very informative with being brought up to date with current legislations & regulations. I also learnt a lot about CDM Regs 2015. I then moved onto & i'm currently taking the NVQ Level 6 in Site Management ( for the CSCS Black Card ). 

I would recommend the programme to any Site Managers / Site Agents.

Jeremy enjoyed the Abrasive Wheels Refresher course and felt it offered everything he needed from it.  It did help him to identify some safety elements that he was unsure of.  Jeremy has previously attended Confined Spaces and PASMA courses with Barrow Training Partnership.

Ben recently attended the City & Guilds Confined Spaces (Medium Risk) course with Barrow Training Partnership and said "Good Instructors giving real life scenarios makes it all the more relative"

Good Instructors

​Attended C & G Signing, Lighting and Guarding.   Everyone at BTP has helped us understand our training needs, advising the right course, avoiding unnecessary training and costs.  The course was intense but was as expected and it will ensure the rangers will work safer when completing tasks next to the highway.

Very good course

Kevin enrolled on the Forklift truck NVQ course and is very happy with it.  He wanted to achieve the NVQ qualification as he loads wagons on a daily basis and feels the certificate helps to prove his competency within the workplace.

Gary learned a lot from the Abrasive Wheels course.  He felt it was very informative and  enjoyable.  Gary didn't realise that all machinery and blades had a life span and he now regularly checks all tools prior to use.

Very informative and Enjoyable course

Melissa thought the Manual Handling course was good.  She said "The tutor was lovely and really good at explaining, I felt I learned a lot about Health & Safety too"
