Construction, Building Management and Trades Organisations

In recent years, our client base in the construction, building management and trades sector has grown significantly with many businesses choosing Acorn as their provider of competent health and safety advice and training.

“The general consensus is that the course was very good with excellent training props, particularly for catastrophic bleeds, blocked airway & use of defibrillators.  A very worthwhile & relevant course.”


“Brilliant pace and refreshers are so important, especially when it has been a while since training – it is good for your own confidence!”


“Very friendly and knowledgeable instructor. I appreciated that the course was tailored to our needs”
