Very informative course, well put together and in an easy relaxed environment to help people be at ease and make the course less stressful and calming. Excellent.

Qualsafe Emergency First Aid at Work - April 2022


All presented in a very friendly atmosphere and made to feel at ease that makes for learning easier.

Tutors are the best I have come across for a long while.

Well done to you all at Lighthouse.

CITB SSSTS - April 2021


Just booked my first place on a course with your organisation and was very impressed with how easy it was

Lighthouse Training

Feedback: Nigel

Top course. Tom was great and entertaining



Having attended many health and safety courses, I found that Paul explained in a way that was clear and understood. Thank you.

Fire Marshall Training, June 2022


Very good communication skills clear and deep explanation of topics helped with questions and solving issues I had with my course . Loved examples she mentioned on every topic she taught.

NEBOSH General - April 23


I have used Lighthouse Safety for several years and their service is absolutely 5 star (I would give more stars if I could). Gill is my main contact and she is so very helpful. Gill goes above and beyond. If I have any queries regarding H&S they are dealt with promptly. I honestly couldn’t praise them highly enough.

Lighthouse Compliance Services - 2024


Very informative and easy to understand and learn from Louise’s tutoring

CITB SSSTS - August 2022


The learning provider delivered a great course and made the subject enjoyable and easy to follow,

they helped as must as they could and always gave feedback and guidance.

NEBOSH Construction - Jan 21


Great Course. Excellent tutor. Subjects were covered in lots of depth, especially mental health which I think was really helpful and needed.

Would definitely recommend this course.

CITB SSSTS - March 21

James, October 2018

The teacher (Rick) was very helpful and explained the questions clearly.

James, October 2018


Very interesting, good pace and I’ve learnt a lot

Emergency First Aid At Work (November 2022)


Michelle was very good.

A good mix of humour and informative knowledge.

Good level of information

Incident Investigation - March 23


I have already recommended you, and they have recently sat the same course!

Lighthouse is a fantastic bunch of people and an absolute pleasure to have met them.

Keep up the fantastic training you deliver. Great team front and back.

NEBOSH NG1 - August 2020


I have spent the last three days at your establishment on the IOSH managing safely course with Gemma Talbot as the tutor.
More often then not in the environments that we work in people are quite often criticised and never praised for the work that they do.
In this instance Gemma and the team at the lighthouse have absolutely smashed it and I feel the recognition is needed as the course ran smoothly with no hiccups and all staff that were at the front line of the days were polite and really made me feel welcome for the duration of the day.
The course was delivered very well and in the right manner for ease of learning for all people in the room.
All staff were very polite, courteous and always very happy to go that extra mile.
Once again thank you to your team and especially Gemma.
Myself and my team will be using Lighthouse again very soon and you will come highly recommended from me.
IOSH Managing Safely, March 2020


I had some training with Lighthouse in Rainham last week and they were excellent!  Two of our guys are also on a course with them and they are also singing their praises.

October 2019


Thank you again for the Directors IOSH training on Friday. You are clearly a man with passion for the subject and its proper implementation.

It was genuinely refreshing that you didn’t bang on about the prison sentences (as so many courses do) but aimed to inspire Directors and lead from the front. A far better way in my opinion.

IOSH Leading Safely - June 2021


The course I attended last week was very good.  Obviously the reason for attendance was to ‘tick the boxes’ and ‘get’ the certificate, however the information learnt, the method(s) of teaching, the environment, and delivery were all outstanding.

The only negative experience of the whole course was travel related and if Sunlight could prevent major holdups on the M25 in future that would be great!

CITB SSSTS - June 2021


It was good to be on a course where the tutor had an understanding of life on a construction site.

Very informative, good presentation making it easier to take in all the details.

CITB SSSTS - August 2020


Course is about the right amount of time. Tutor confident and answered all questions. Good films incorporated to highlight contents.

Lorraine, October 2018 (Fire Warden)


Brilliant and engaging. Will be back in 5 years

October 2022 (SMSTS Refresher)


Very well delivered, top tutor.

I came away with a new found respect for H&S processes

CITB SSSTS - July 2022


Presented brilliantly and made the course subject very straightforward and easy to understand.

Would recommend this course and tutor to my colleagues for the future.

Well run course, tutor was very interactive. I liked that the slides were used more of  an aid rather than relied on which is a great presentation style.

There was a good engagement with the group with good discussions. A good range of resources and info used

NEBOSH NG1 April 2023


Lou was an excellent tutor. She was helpful, friendly and made sure everyone understood things. Lou was willing to answer any questions I had and she has really helped me understand things more that I will be able to use when I go back to work.

NEBOSH General - APR 23


I would like to say a big thank you to Sam who has been so helpful and encouraging in getting me though this certificate. All being well, I’m hoping to return to Lighthouse Safety in the new year to do NEBOSH Environmental

NEBOSH General, April 2022


As a new starter to Health and Safety this has been very useful.

Information overload but great knowledge taken away.

Great training.

IOSH Managing Safely - April 2021


Lee was good at running the course, he gave many different examples to understand the context

IOSH Managing Safely - March 23


I recently attended the SMSTS course at your London facilities and would very much like to highlight my praises for the training received.

Lee Whall is an exceptional individual with an immense capability of delivering high quality, factual information.

Lee made the course interesting and fun, he also displayed a great command of the classroom (especially when individuals had their own “strong” opinions (not always the right ones)). Lee calmly re-corrected any “strong” incorrect information and continued with us on our learning journey.

A great course throughout, it was fully enjoyed by all and this is testament to Lee, I have personally worked within the training delivery sector for the past 11 years and in my opinion Lee is exceptional!

CITB SMSTS - June 23

Feedback: Darren

Very informative, lots of content, ideally could be a day or two longer.

NEBOSH Construction July 2021


One of the best tutors I have had to deliver a course, knowledge of all subject matter was excellent even with some of the questions some of the more senior members of the team threw at him.

Great presentation skills and personality.

Made ALL of the course content interesting

CITB SMSTS (London) - June 23


Excellent instruction throughout the course from an instructor who is clearly a subject matter expert within his field.

Thanks for this and your time today.

It can’t be easy doing the training at distance but it was an informative and enjoyable session regardless, well done.

Harry made learning easy, using methods i’ve not experienced before.

Learnt more about things people have tried to teach me before.

CITB SMSTS Refresher - August 2020


This course had the potential to be difficult / triggering in places, but the instructors did a great job of looking after everyone. Acknowledging the weight of the topic and informing the participants that they could leave the room, or opt out of certain sections if necessary. Overall the course was very informative and very well delivered. Thank you very much!

NEBOSH Fire - November 23


Rick made a subject that can be considered as tedious, boring and dull into a fun enjoyable subject to learn and I can take a lot from the discussions we had as a class.

Ricks style of training was fun and enjoyable and recommendable.

Course tutor was very knowledgeable and provided the information in a conversational/discussion format that was good for interactive learning. The tutor was funny and charismatic which made the course more interesting.

Anon, October 2018 (CDM Awareness)


Amy was very good at leading the course, she was very understanding of the fact everyonehad a different level of previous knowledge on the subject matter. She kept it as engaging as possible (due to it being over Zoom).

Amy is also clearly very knowledgeable and I hope to be on one of her courses in the future 🙂

IOSH - Online Managing Safely Jan 2021


The best course I have ever been on, usually they are boring and make you feel sleepy! But not with Lee Whall, great presentation and a very great tutor. Thanks Lee

CITB SMSTS - March 24


Good timing for each section of course and provide mini break in between.

Good selection of video

Very efficient method of teaching, upbeat and very enjoyable.

Overall the course was very informative, efficient and fun

CITB SMSTS July 2023


Really good and well communicated course with an excellent training method, I would definitely look to book additional courses when required.

Thank you Tom and Steve.




Thank you very much.
Your methodology for passing NEBOSH exams certainly works. I know you knew this but nice to hear from someone who never even turned up for his school exams (me).
59 on my exam was more than expected as I know I left an easy 5-10 marks in my head. (the answers came flooding back on my journey home). I thought I nailed my practical but can’t complain with 72 marks.
I start my new job in 10 days in a SHEQ Advisor role and have my General course booked at the end of March.
Thanks again
NEBOSH Environmental - December 2020


Lee is a talented teacher who takes the time to listen to all opinions and answers, which makes a great difference to the enjoyability of learning.

Instead of just reading off the board, he offers an interactive approach whilst sharing personal experience and a wide range of knowledge on all matters health and safety.

I didn’t know what to expect during the course but Lee exceeded all my expectations and I’m much more knowledgeable on H&S

CITB SMSTS - July 2023

The course was simple with clear explanations all modules, really useful learning.
