The modules are designed to be short, sharp and focussed and will provide refresher training for operators. They are not to be used as a substitute for novice operator training, nor will they offer the wide range of skills needed for inexperienced operators to work safely.
There is no limit to the amount of modules booked, allowing flexibility and each course to be tailor-made based on the individual wants and needs of the learner or groups of learners.
