Chief Petty Officer Mark Campbell reflects on his training experiences with Woodward SHE Ltd…
After completing 22 years in the Royal Navy, I reached the point when I needed to seriously consider what courses to apply for during my resettlement period and pursuing a career in Health and Safety seemed the obvious path to follow, in fact, you could say it was a no-brainer.
As a member of the Armed Forces, regardless of rank, you are embroiled in a strong Health and Safety culture whether you like it or not, always being encouraged to follow the rules and enforce the correct procedures and practices whilst embracing a “Work Safe, Home Safe” attitude.
I decided on taking a combined NEBOSH package through Woodward SHE Ltd which consisted of five NEBOSH certificates. These included the General Certificate, the International General Certificate, the Construction Certificate, the Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate and the Environmental Management Certificate.
When I compared other companies who were offering similar NEBOSH packages, and taking everything into account (cost, location, course dates) it was clear that Woodward offered the best value for money by far. After using one of my ELCs to pay for the majority of the total cost, I was left with a small balance to pay, which was pretty much covered by my resettlement grant.
