What Our Customers Are Saying

  • I attended the SMSTS refresher course on the 30th January - 31st January 2020. The course was presented to a high standard and the tutor gave the group excellent support. I do think the Libben Health & Safety Training office in Birmingham is ideally located. Thanks for the help & support I received on this course. CITB SMSTS REFRESHER

  • I passed my CSCS course with Libben a few years ago and was happy with the trainer and course. I have continued using Libben for my First aid and SMSTS, the trainers were great and would recommend Libben to anyone and the price was cheaper than the other course providers. Libben staff were very helpful. Will be using them again soon. - CITB SMSTS
