A Polite Notice

It pays to be selective when booking training courses because not all training providers are what they appear to be. When booking a QUALSAFE Level 2 COSHH Course you need to feel assured that your training provider is fully accredited to provide that training and is not then going to sub-contract the work. Lighthouse Safety Training is fully accredited by QUALSAFE to provide the QUALSAFE Level 2 QUALSAFE course and proof of that accreditation can be seen on our accreditation page.
