Thank you for your support, time, and training skills today. Especially being a weekend. It was by far the most educational tower rescue I have attended; I learned and refreshed many skills today.
I completed this training course with our team on 3/02/2022 and we all found it very informative and well-structured achieving a great balance between the legislation, good practice, and being realistic. The course leader Ed spent time explaining everything in simple easy to understand terminology. The afternoon was practical training on how to use the equipment for safe working at heights and how to check whether this was appropriate, current, and how to know if it was to standard. Thank you!
Ed was super engaging and made the course interesting. He seems to know the subject inside out and could answer any question. Was personable and interactive with the students. The training covered theory and then applied it in a hands-on way for the practical section.
Plain English verbal/visual presentation by trainer about working at heights that made sense of legislative jargon. Getting to use the gear – climb stuff – have applied experience in the working at heights environment
The training promoted collaboration between the team. This created discussions that lead to more knowledge of the area
