Redhills required a Confined Space training facility to train our staff to the highest level. After a visit to their offices in Arundel and chat with Shaun the Director, it was very clear that Alpha Training had the experience and knowledge to fulfil our requirements. We have since had many dealings with Alpha Training and find their trainers professional and very helpful.


Alpha Training Safety Solutions have supported Morrison Utility Services in training and developing our people in the key skills required for the utility industry. They have provided us with an excellent service combined with a quality assured training delivery to support our employees.
