Three days training. One day for the assessment (on a fourth day). Please note that the assessments are to be confirmed and you will be emailed with a date once the assessment has been scheduled. We do try to ensure that the assessment is consecutive but cannot guarantee this. Do you need a refresher? HSE advises that you complete a refresher every 5 years, although some insurance companies state every 3 years. We can help. We tend to run the courses when we have four people requiring the same units for refreshing, if you get in touch we 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 we can put a date together just for you. You will receive a Lowe Maintenance Certificate of Completion.
