    I've been Thinking about doing one for a while and I'm just wondering whether training courses are worth doing?

    Which one is the best to go on as there are a few company's who do them.

    Has it benefited you and your business?

    I have looked at both of them just deciding which one to go for probs will be impact 43 as they courses closer to me

    Are the 4days all at once or over a number of weeks?

    personally it has, opened eyes up to right and wrongs etc.
    given me more backing it get larger jobs and how to do risk assesments the right way etc.

    lot of guys say you dont need it, but i think it helps.

    for me it was done one day a month.

    I think it would help me, I just wondered whether it had helped and benifitted people who had done it.

    Did you book them all at once?

    yer i think it has, and for free cant go wrong, other places want £300+ for similar things,
    at least you get a city and guilds at the end of it, other ones dont even offer that!

    you just book it and they let you know the dates!
