“The Generic Underground Induction is an excellent introduction to the industry. The theory components were relevant and interesting and the practical exercises provided real training and simulation. Our trainer Andrew got the best out of us and kept us entertained with some stories from his 20 years plus experience. The staff, food and facilities exceeded expectations.”
