Mark Littlejohns at Capital People has been fantastic in delivering a successful NEBOSH Construction Certificate for a number of staff on our premises, going out of his way to accommodate delivery dates and structure to suit our needs. We approached Capital People for this course after a fantastic experience of a previous NEBOSH Diploma course, and yet again, their service and delivery was exceptional. I will certainly be looking to Capital People for future training.
