Very good online course,q
I am totally impressed about the course, it gave me brief ideas about Health and Safety and how to take precautions. I will definitely take another course with ASTUTIS and suggest everyone to take from ASTUTIS.Ellis Melvin Do Rosario - 20-07-2020

e-learning IOSH Working Safely
Great course I am yet to complete the course however the tutorials and information are easy to understand I would recommend this to anyone looking to get into the health and safety sector.Tyrone C - 15-07-2020
Overall, a worthwhile course as an introduction to Environmental Management
The course is quite good, with decent learning material. Some of the links to information appears to be a bit dated, and throughout the online and paper downloads there a quite a few typos. A bit more attention to deatail should be given, to give the learner comfort that its a top drawer leaning journey.Mitch - 15-07-2020
