"As my role at work has a focus on Heath, Safety and Wellbeing, it was a natural step to back this up with a recognised formal qualification such as the NEBOSH General Certificate. The programme trainer used his wealth of experience to bring the subject to life with real situations. I really enjoyed the course, the delivery and the venue, all rewarded with a Pass with Distinction at the end and I would wholeheartedly recommend York College as a great provider of this course.“
