Why choose Shepherds Health & Safety Ltd Training?
“Easy to use layout that is clear. No speed or refresh issues were experienced. There were one or two questions which mean the same thing just said using slightly different wording. Unfortunately I can't remember what question to give an example. Jargon kept to a minimum and explained along the way if it was used. In some instances it does seem like a lot of information to take in at once before the questions round. Could this be broken down in some way, it might make the experience more interactive and therefore more easy to remember afterwards.”
