Testimonials

  • I recently completed a NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Health and Safety with Capital People, and I couldn’t be more impressed. The tutors were knowledgeable and engaging, the materials were comprehensive and well organised, and the overall learning experience was excellent. I particularly appreciated how accessible tutors were to answer questions in and out of training days. I would like to thank Mark in particular for providing the support I needed to achieve this qualification. I now feel more confident and equipped in my role. I would highly recommend Capital People as a trainer to others looking to complete similar qualifications.
