“Yesterday Qube completed an afternoons Legionella awareness training session to ten members of our management team consisting of Technical Director, Senior Manager Factory, Engineering Manager, Health, Safety & Environment Manager and six managerial team members. The training was very informative and conducted in a very professional but easy to understand manner. This morning several of those who attended Technical Director & Senior Manager and a couple of the managerial team who I have spoken to so far today express their appreciation of the subject, their new understanding of Legionella and commented on the competence and expanse of practice knowledge of the trainer.
Whilst I’ve been employed at Dudson Limited this to my knowledge is the first ever time that team members have commented so favourable to a training session, most of the time they complain of more responsibility to they have to manage.
A well done and a very big thank you!”
