What Other Learners Say About our Health & Safety Courses....

Great training session on Friday where I learned a lot of practical information in how to both protect me and my staff and just as importantly my business that I’ve spent hundreds of hours building and could be wiped out because of lack of information of how to do things right in todays suing culture. Great training, glad to have been there

Colin Howe / Howe's Painting & Decorating

I have attended an excellent training session which has encouraged me to recommend to my friends to better protect themselves with training.

David Young / Focused Massage

Aiker Training have provided my company Sound Sleep Ltd with Health and Safety Training, Manual Handling and Fire Safety Training. They are professional and very knowledgeable. The training was delivered to a high standard and the fact that they came to my business location was incredibly convenient, so no sending my staff off for training – all done in house with my team! Recommend to any local business!
