“The courses were delivered with high attention to detail and gave information and examples that are relevant in industry and not just “textbook” material. There was a lot of information available and I thought the timeline and the course delivery was exceptional. I took away a very positive experience from it. The course itself exceeded my expectations.”
“I do enjoy the studying with RiskTec, appreciate so many learning material which will still take me some time to review.”
“Resulted in good ‘all round’ understanding: the topics chosen provided good coverage and it was useful to have exposure to how things are done in other industries.”
“I am very happy with the RAC modules that I currently have, and looking forward to pass it by end of the year! The modules and what I learn will definitely help me in my current profession.”
“As an experienced HSE professional already working with risk assessment and safety management on a daily basis in highly hazardous demanding environment of an oil refinery, I found the course provided me a broader and deeper knowledge. The most interesting part of the course is the preparation of the essay which stimulates the learners to study broader and deeper the issues.”
