Course was very beneficial and covered all aspects of the role in good detail. Moved at a good pace and was easy to follow.

Ned was excellent tutor and very engaging. found the course very informative and will be recommending OSS in future. 

O’Dwyer Safety Services Ltd provided me with great understanding of the PSCS role in construction stage along with all the other duties holders. Ned kept everyone involved and interested and I would recommend this course and supplier to anyone interested.

Genuinely this was a very good course. As a person who this was relatively new to it was daunting on day 1 but I felt like I was able to get up to speed fairly quickly given the course material provided. Ned was excellent, very good to keep people on the ball by asking questions throughout. 

The PSCS course is a fantastic course for anyone who has a requirement for this in their worl<ing role. The course was informative, concise and easy to follow. There was plenty of involvement from everyone and even though it was a virtual online course on this occasion I felt it didn't make any difference to the experience. Thank you Ned!

Excellent course. Very detailed and excellent interaction. Very helpful and informative tutor.
