Why Should You Choose Astutis?

Our customer experience is our first and foremost priority. Everything else comes second.

From the ability to learn in your own language to the newly implemented screen reader feature in our NEBOSH Fire Certificate course, we build our courses so that you can learn in the way and time frame that best suits your needs as a business and an individual.

Fiaz Rehman, one of our NEBOSH International Diploma learners, noted how he found Astutis to be very supportive – going above and beyond the call of duty to make his learner experience as easy as possible:

“One thing I have appreciated till this day is Astutis arranged for me to have my exam in my home country, Pakistan. They did not charge me anything extra and arranged for it to be in my hometown. And the examiner told me it was the first NEBOSH exam that had taken place in my hometown and Astutis wanted it to be easier for me and paid extra to have it close to me. That moved me a lot, and all the credit for where I am today goes to Astutis.”

This flexible and customer-first approach was also mentioned by our NEBOSH Diploma 2023 Graduates.

These initiatives include:

Benefits of Choosing Astutis for Workplace Training

Health, safety and environmental courses benefit employers, employees and wider society as a whole. 


Employer Benefits

Organisations that undertake a thorough health and safety training program gain access to numerous benefits such as bulk purchase discounts, improved safety cultures, increased productivity and international recognition.

  • Bulk purchases of any of our online courses yield various discounts depending on the size of the tender – for further information on this, you can contact our sales team.
  • Improved Safety Cultures help organisations develop self-governance across all areas of the business. Better cultures surrounding safety ensure that every employee feels shared responsibility for safety, further increasing the likelihood of risks being spotted earlier.
  • Increased productivity comes from a reduced number of accidents and that will result in a reduction of absences. This also mitigates delays to work and, therefore, ensures a better customer experience when work is completed on time.
  • International recognition is assured when completing courses from internationally renowned organisations like IOSH, NEBOSH and IEMA. Suppliers, customers, clients and stakeholders will all recognise the value of these qualifications and will legitimise your work as being of an exceptional standard.


Learner Benefits

Individual learners taking an Astutis course stand to benefit from student discounts, increased competency in their roles, salary increases and promotions.

  • Totum Membership is available to all our learners. This membership gives you access to over 600 discounts, deals and offers with big-name brands both online and in-store.
  • Increased competency in their role from training with Astutis, will develop learner confidence and overall job satisfaction knowing they have the support and knowledge to perform at their highest level.
  • Salary Increases are also very common for our learners. From a recent survey of our NEBOSH Diploma learners, we found that 81% of them have received a promotion or secured a pay increase within 12 months of completing their qualification. A further 11% of the surveyed individuals noted they we expecting to progress soon.


Wider Benefits        

More broadly, the societal impact of quality health and safety training cannot be overlooked. Workplace injuries and new cases of work-related ill-health cost Britain £20.7 billion in 2021/22. Serious workplace accidents that require medical attention also strain an already struggling health service.

Additionally, HSE reported that 35.2 million working days were lost in 2022/23 due to workplace injuries. This negatively impacts customers and their plans once projects are completed.


Astutis Customer Case Studies

We have worked with prestigious, big-name brands to deliver courses for their specific needs. Network Rail, Ferrero, Bentley and Amazon are just a few of the organisations we have worked with to develop their health and safety practices.

Rob Canham, NEBOSH Diploma Graduate

“The quality and ease of the material was something that I really picked up on. I'm quite open and honest about my ADHD. So, I sometimes struggle with my focus and hold my attention. I found out that Astutis used innovative methods and really engaged me, and the variety of material in the online course was so helpful in that process.”

Heather Beech, Barbour Director

“Astutis have been incredibly flexible in delivering exactly what we wanted. The feedback from my colleagues has been excellent, and they have really helped to upskill the team not only to pass the IOSH exam but also to learn more specific information to help our clients make the right choices.”

Louis Pienaar, Former British Army Service Member

" For military personnel, there are a lot of training opportunities, and I think a lot of people underestimate the value of training to their careers. I decided three years ago that these training courses provided me with the career trajectory that I wanted. Astutis has given me the opportunity to train, and now I am fully prepared for the next stage of my career."
