It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training are fully accredited by OCR to provide the Transport Managers Course.

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Alan, Harry & Andy for enabling me to gain such a recognised qualification in such a short space of time. The National/International CPC was a world away from any of my expectations, a combination of Alan’s knowledge, professionalism and teaching ability, mixed with the setup of lighthouse safety training made that possible.

As with everything in this day and age, attention to detail is paramount. We were provided with all the necessary coursework, folders etc, as well as buffet lunches, tea/coffee and biscuits on a daily basis. The procurement of larger premises is evidence of the success of the company and I am pleased to say that I have seen first hand how that success has been achieved and delivered.

I wish you both the very best for the future and rest assured, I will point people in your direction whenever someone is looking for a qualification that you guys can deliver.
