    Eve Rooney | Dow Corning

  • After failing my first attempt at the NEBOSH General Certificate, I booked my next attempt with Capital.

    I learnt more in one day at Capital than I did in the whole course with my previous provider.
    The trainer was clear, precise and personable and all communication was spot on.

    Highly recommended and hope to be getting on further courses with you in the future.

Recapped each day to check understanding. Lunch and the facilities were excellent. Ideal venue for training and excellent course.
