Our courses are held at the Clients Premises!
The Play Inspection Company provides training at our client’s premises, thus avoiding the unnecessary expense and hassle of sending employee’s away. Our Trainers will provide all the equipment necessary for this course, and only require a room suitable for training purposes.
Access to two playgrounds is essential for the practical element of the courses and exams (if desired) and it is the client’s responsibility to provide the necessary transportation to and from the play areas as necessary.
Attendees will be expected to be able to climb and thoroughly inspect play equipment on-site. Due to the practical aspects of this course and possible inclement weather, please wear appropriate clothing.
Training packs will be provided at the course.
