"It was great that lunch was provided the remote location but would be better with more healthier options. Other than that I thought the course was great and I learnt a lot which I can now use in my workplace. "

"Enjoyable course, good trainer and facility's were also good."
Alan John Hunter, Scottish Prison Service, comments on the Disinfection of Water Supply Systems in Buildings training course.

"The course overall was good. The questions on the evening paper and exam were a little ambiguous and could have been clearer. Also closed book exams are a thing of the past, as an AP my reference documents for all subjects are what are important to me and where to find the information within these just as important, what I can remember of the top of my head is usually backed up with relevant references to documentation. On another note, lunches and rest area was good, both trainers we had were very knowledgeable and answered any questions to a high standard and the amount of switchgear you had available was impressive to meet the needs of many scenarios for my course and also plenty of others."
Adam Bulley, Carillion Amey Ltd, comments on the Authorised Person: Electrical Standby training course.

"I think Rob was an excellent instructor who knew his subject matter inside out. He made the course enjoyable through his training methods and all the candidates are off the same opinion."

Julian Rayner, HM Courts and Tribunals Service, comments on the Legionella and ACOP L8 Awareness training course.

Your trainer was extremely friendly and polite and made everyone feel like part of a team. I would happily book more training with your company and will also recommend you to my friends and colleagues."
David Kraus, D Kraus Plant, comments on the SHEA Gas training course.

"The trainer demonstrated a command of all aspects of how to Manage the Risks associated with Legionella and he was able to answer questions from delegates with similar confidence and authority. Secondly, the information was delivered in an interesting and engaging way which helped the delegates to grasp the Key Learning Points. I believe every delegate was successful in attaining the Aessessment Pass Mark first go, another measure of success."

"Very useful course, Ian brought all the various regulations and attendees experiences together very well."
Graham Batty, ENGIE SERVICES LTD, comments on the Implementation of Safe Systems of Work by Authorised Persons for Confined Spaces training course.

"I always enjoy the training sessions at Develop. I have never attended a bad course & have always left feeling I have been armed with the best & most up-to-date info available. There is some inconsistency in the info given from one trainer to another, in this I mean, one trainer may place more emphasis/importance on one element that another trainer may think is less important but this is a minor detail & I just implement the most current training style/content I have been shown. Develop has a friendly & supportive atmosphere, the training staff are very good/knowledgeable & Develop would always be my favoured place to do my training in the future. Keep up the good work, best wishes, Llewellyn."
Llewellyn Plant, Sheffield Childrens NHS Trust, comments on the Authorised Person: LV Healthcare Refresher training course.
