    HSE advises that you complete a refresher every 5 years, although some insurance companies state every 3 years. Lowe Maintenance tend to run the courses when they have a couple of people requiring the same units for refreshing, if you get in touch they can add you to the list and let you know when the next refresher date is planned for.

    Equally if you have a group of people Lowe Maintenance can put a date together just for you.

    You will receive a Lowe Maintenance Certificate of Completion.
