"...alert with regards to learner's needs,  making it fun, interesting and engaging, without making it look like a usual boring in-class training."

Diana, Logistics Graduate

"Adam is not your typical trainer.

Very soft spoken and alert with regards to learner's needs, he can definitely deliver a lot of information within a short period of time, while making it fun, interesting and engaging, without making it look like a usual boring in-class training.

He has a great personality and you would be surprised to find out how easy it is to learn with him a great amount of information, and still be prepared for the final exams.

I recommend Adam with all my heart, for any health and safety training programs, because you will not be dissapointed."

Diana Gabor
Logistics Graduate

"...attention to all the delegates questions was a huge benefit in making the course easier to understand and enjoyable."

Gildas, NHS Manager

"I recently completed the IOSH Managing Safely course, something I had been meaning to do for quite sometime.

I have experience of working operationally as a police officer and with the ambulance service and felt attending the course would be a natural step in my career as a manager in the NHS.

Adam Harries, the trainer / facilitator for this course provided clear, concise and excellent tuition with an obvious high level of experience and knowledge in the subject.

It's been a long time since I have had to sit an assessment, or write any assignments however Adam's approach to teaching, his attention to all the delegates questions and any issues raised was a huge benefit in making the course easier to understand and enjoyable.

Since completed the course, I have know taken the next step and enrolled myself onto the NEBOSH General Certificate course (something I hadn't intended to do).

I'd like thank Adam for helping me to me get the confidence and desire to excel and better myself and I would most certainly recommend Adam for anyone looking to attend a course.


Thank you, I hope to meet Adam again in the near future."

NHS Manager
