NVQ Level 5 as a minimum, was greeted with a degree of trepidation by some of the older members of staff, not least myself. It became clear from the outset my fears were entirely unfounded. The initial interview at Wolverhampton College gave me confidence that I was educated to a sufficient standard to undertake the course.
"I was attracted by the flexibility of the Wolverhampton College course and found it offered everything I was looking for and more! The staff at the College are extremely friendly, helpful, and courteous."
The course covered an incredible amount of ground in an amazingly short time. But the transitions from topic to topic were seamless, my tutor Ken Davies has an infectious enthusiasm for the subject and peppers his lectures with humorous and interesting anecdotes. Ken is a great instructor, very entertaining, knowledgeable, and willing to help. I found the material very applicable and got much more out of the tutorials than I expected. The support between tutorials was impressive with Ken being available to respond to emailed questions and phone calls very quickly and efficiently.
"Wolverhampton College has provided me with an excellent service tailored to my specific needs. They have succeeded in delivering a training course which is specific and relevant to my particular needs. Ken Davies delivers in a way which allows attendees to interact, while learning skills and knowledge which can be applied to their individual roles."
Following the successful completion of the course, I am in a position to begin the process of becoming a chartered health and safety practitioner, hopefully leading to a senior management position.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Wolverhampton College as a training provider

I have recently completed my City and Guilds (3654) qualification in Occupational Health and Safety at Wolverhampton College (Telford Campus).
The course has provided me with the knowledge and skills to operate as a professional health and safety advisor within the Nuclear Sector.
"The course is structured and delivered in a way that enabled me to transfer the academic knowledge and put them into practice within my business."
The qualification met the academic requirements for Graduate Membership (Grad IOSH) of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
I have also gained further experience and recently started my initial professional development (IPD), I have now progressed into a Chartered Safety Practitioner (CMIOSH). This status is a recognisable certification and now allows me to register on the Occupational Safety and Health Consultancy Register (OSHCR)
Finally, I would recommend Wolverhampton College for delivering any occupational health and safety training. The lecturer (Ken Davies) was a professional who had obviously spent time within industry. His expert guidance and knowledge has helped me achieve my current CMIOSH status.
