Competum provide quality training and they are a very credible service provider. They sort competent and experienced facilitators that are capable of sharing their knowledge in a manner that has the attendees interested throughout the course. The facilitators also presents the course in such a way that it is applicable to the work that is performed on site. This makes it easier for the attendees to apply what they have learnt on site. I would recommend Competum as they are able to provide training to suit your needs.
