What our customers say?

"On my transition from the forces to the civilian sector, I used BVA as my NEBOSH course provider. Well the results speak for themselves, 3 out of 3 passed and on my first attempt with all. The advice given by the advisors (Claire) was superb. The professionalism continues with their first-rate instructors.  I could not be happier with the way the courses progressed. First rate from start to finish!"

"Would just like to thank Dean Ferguson at BV Associates and his team, especially Jon Gow for the totally professional delivery of the NEBOSH NGC 1 & 2 syllabuses. Totally blown away by the the expert industry knowledge that Jon has to offer. Jon explained in detail and simple terms each and every part of the course. Initially I thought it was going to be death by PowerPoint for two weeks, however, Jon’s programming of daily home work and morning confirmatory syndicate break out revision sessions were very worthwhile and engaged all on the course with different learning styles. H&S can been seen as a ‘Dry’ subject to some but Jon made it something more worthwhile to learn and gain knowledge about. I personally feel I am fully prepared for the exams next week. Jon is a total credit to BV Associates Ltd."
