  1. Rob Shepherd

    I recently attended this course and found the trainer (Ash) to be engaging, confident and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the subject. The addition of electronic tablets for the reference material was really good being easy to use and not taking up loads of space on the table! the pace of learning was just right and the depth of syllabus perfect for applying to my work.
    The venue used was smart and easy to find/use with good facilities.

      Thanks for the constructive feedback Rob. A good sign we are not only maintaining standards but improving where we can. Gerry Morpeth, Course Director

  2. Gary Pearce

    As always an excellent course from Morsafe, the inclusion of tablets in the programme makes looking up and revision a lot easier. Also saves a few trees every course.

    • ekszx

      Thanks for the feedback Gary and the tablets are new to management courses and seem to be going down well. Gerry Morpeth, Course Director

  3. Michael Laity

    I attended the course last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ash delivered the course well, stopping for discussion and setting a steady learning pace. If I could comment on one thing, that would be the course assessment. The assessment could of been done at home over a period of time and emailed. Good course and tutor.

    • Morsafe

      Thanks for the positive feedback following your recent course. The problem with “work being done at home” is that often it isn’t and we therefore cannot certify the delegate until all has been completed. This would also be difficult to monitor.

  4. david brown

    This is the second working at height course I have been on, both were good courses one done by yourself Gerry which was excellent, and the more recent done by ash, I must say for a guy so young he has excellent knowledge of the subject and his delivery is superb, very helpful in explaining something if you are not to sure, and the use of the tabs on the course was definite help and a good move on your part to keep up with technology.

    • Morsafe

      Hi David. Thanks for your positive feedback and I am pleased to hear that what we are doing still hits the mark. I will pass your comments on to Ash.

  5. steve egmore

    this is the third time I have done this course .I thought the course was good well presented by ash
    the use of the tablets was good saving on a lot of paper . course content was good . ash as a great knowledge of the subject and easy to understand

  6. Steve M

    Very informative. Stuart is a very capable teacher.

  7. Tom Wells

    After using Morsafe previously for my Confined Space course, it was nice to use them again for my Working at Height training. Gerry and Andrew were brilliant at delivering the course material and putting it into real world terms to. It is also nice to see a company trying to save the planet and not waste paper by introducing tablets for the resource material. It was also much easier than flicking through loads of handouts. I will highly recommend Moresafe to colleagues.

  8. Roger Gregory

    Just completed the course and in common with the another course I have undertaken with Morsafe, good delivery by the lecturers, knowledgeable and what more humour added as well!

  9. Terry Holmes

    I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I found the instructors and the other delegates helpful and constructive. I did have some difficulty with the use of tablet computers, but managed to cope OK. Some of the course material was evidently still being proofed, but I think we all understood the intent! For those who are new to the subject, deviations from the course plan can lead to tests having questions on a topic not yet covered. I think that although there was a huge amount of supporting information and material, that the Working at Height Chapter 7 Rule Book should be included. Overall, a very enjoyable and informative few days. Thankyou very much.

  10. Mick L

    No changes required in my opinion. Excellent, fun, relevant and comprehensive training gratefully received. Thank you team.

  11. Ray Burgess

    A most informative and enjoyable course delivered by Gerry and Andrew who were able to speak with knowledge and authority on the subject and background legislation. Definitely recommended.

  12. Allister R

    Trainer had good delivery and bags of experience which made relating to scenarios easy. He was happy to help and encouraged questions. Excellent overall.

  13. Vernon W

    All good. The course was very informative. The instructor was very good.

  14. Stephen H

    Course Instructor was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and accommodating throughout. The course caters for all delegates and I am looking forward to further training with Morsafe for other disciplines.

  15. Martin C

    Excellent course that reinforced my AP W@H refresher requirements.

  16. Alan G

    Good course with an excellent instructor.

  17. Andrew S

    Good course. Interesting and really well delivered.
