Each course delegate will be expected to complete a short theory test and practical examination to demonstrate a good understanding of the course contents. If successful, a certificate will be issued. This will help the Employer to address certain legal requirements by being able to demonstrate employee competency. A detailed course handout is also provided for future reference.


The standard course is intended to last 2 days. Bespoke courses can also be discussed upon application.


The course is generally held at our Head Office at Harworth, however we are also able to utilise other Certex locations, or hold courses at Client premises if adequate facilities are available.
