‘This was probably the best training course I have taken in 25 years… [A] great course, thank you. I will certainly be doing another.’

“The amount of information was exactly the type that I search high and low for in my job. I can read a thousand manuals that I get when a new piece of plant is commissioned and still it doesn’t explain things as well as the content on this course. Really good stuff.”
Stuart Chatten – Anglian Water
“…Thank you very much for all of your help and support throughout the CIWEM unit. It has all been very informative and useful to me and I have definitely learnt a lot. The course was definitely set out in a very good and easy way to learn. It was nice to receive such great and positive feedback for my answers.”
