Here is what some of our clients have to say about Train Direct courses...
“Attended first aid at work training requested by my employer. I spent 3-days with Christopher which was a mixture of hands-on, presentations and interactive sessions. The training given to us was professionally delivered and the training materials were excellent. Gained valuable knowledge and insights, I would definitely recommend the course to others. Looking forward to doing more courses delivered by Train Direct in future.”
