Work and Industry Courses

remote and lone working courses

Safety in the workplace is paramount for all employers and staff - the health and wellbeing of all team members, contractors and the general public is built into every site management plan and structure.
But what if the workplace is in the Highlands of Scotland? Or deep in a forest far from conventional help and communication with the outside world? Does your existing plan for the safety of yourself, your team and your colleagues work in that environment?
The courses we deliver to clients in the construction, consultancy, fieldwork, ecological and associated fields range from entry-level to management courses.
We deliver courses both as part of the EST Framework and as tailored training packages to meet the individual needs of our clients.
