Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to attend the course. I had done DG training through work numerous times and didn't really take much in. Thanks to the patience of the trainer, I was able to walk away from the course and still retain some of the knowledge I had acquired, I would happily recommend this training to anyone.

The trainer was extremely knowledgeable and his delivery of the subject matter was excellent. He made it easy to understand as this was the first time I had been introduced to the subject matter.

The trainer had an incredible knowledge of the topic and the DG industry as a whole. The printed handout (Dangerous Goods Drivers License Manual) was extremely well written, the layout and flow of the document was logical and matched the order of the course material and assessments. It has already come in handy for reference back at work.

The trainer showed throughout the duration of the two days a real and demonstrated understanding of the course content and its application in the real world. His demeanour and life experience in the industry over many years and his obvious passion for teaching was extremely encouraging to everyone on the course. Personally I was very impressed and will be recommending your company to others.

The trainer was all over it his experience showed through in his detailed examples. I learnt some aspects I wasn't aware of from previous courses with other providers. The facilities were 2nd to none.

This was my second DG course. The first was years ago at another training school. I found it all very confusing. This time after training at Nationwide, I have come away from the course feeling competent at correctly completing my job
when carting DG.
