General Information

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 for the delegates to and from the play areas as necessary.
