Testimonials

“All of my courses were delivered by Nik who is a true font of knowledge. His enthusiasm and passion for the subject matter is infectious. He was patient when I strugg

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend BV Associates as a provider and should I complete further training in the future, I won’t be looking anywhere other than BV Associates Limited.

best wishes for the future!”

“I must say the standard of the instruction by Nik Taylor is second to none, he made the learning environment comfortable and put all the learners at ease. His knowledge and the way he brings to life and easy to understand is excellent. He was available 24/7 for anything that needed clarifying by the students. The exam was also run to the highest standard by Claire. Please pass my thanks to both and I can’t wait to see them again on my fire course in Feb!”

Adrian Campbell

“We are very conscious that in the manufacturing environment that we work in, that we need well informed and trained personnel. Safety and Quality are the underpinning areas of our business and this is never more apparent than when we train our Safety Representatives.

The IOSH Managing Safely course delivered by your instructors is outstanding and we have had nothing but good feedback from the work force. This feedback has mentioned the professionalism, knowledge and relevance to our manufacturing environment making it easy for the Safety Representatives to relate the content into their every day job roles.

On a personal note, I would like to thank you for your continued help in supporting the quick demands of our training needs. Your administrative staff have been really accommodating in their response to requests, information on changes and understanding when we have had problems with our complex vendor / payment systems.

Looking to the future, we are a growing business and we are looking forward to continuing this good working relationship that we have built with your company.”

Mark Blow

“Amazing company providing excellent training for forces personnel. Would highly recommend this company.”

Pte William Armstrong
HM Forces (Army)

“2 courses (NGC1/2 and NCC1/2) completed with BV Associates, very professional company that delivers a great standard of training. I have had the joy of Nik Taylor as an instructor on both courses and his training style and delivery of the subject matter is second to non. Thank you all at BV Associates for everything you have done to help me gain these qualifications and I am happy to recommend you to anyone.”

Joe King
Director at RTJ Training Ltd

“I can certainly recommend training with Dean Ferguson, they offer superb training and utilise your ELCAS funding to the maximum giving you the best start after the military. Dean and his team guided me whilst I was still serving and I haven’t looked back since.”

Christopher Kirby
Fuels Manager / Chief Chemist

“Fantastic company, great tutors. Would recommend this company 100% to anyone who wishes to attend any H&S Training course.”

Gary Sunderland
Ministry of Defence

“Chris, Dean. I just wanted to let you know that I secured a position as a project engineer for an oil and gas company called Stork Technical Services. This was in no small part helped by the knowledge gained on the construction course. At interview I was able to demonstrate a good understanding of health and safety which I gained from both the general and construction phases of my course. I just want to thank you both for the excellent way in which the course was set up in Paderborn and Deepcut and for the great instruction from both Chris and Nik. Being awarded a distinction was the cherry on the top. Please pass my thanks to Nik. I will certainly recommend BV Associates.”

Steve Driver
Stork Technical Services

“Thank you so very much for the fantastic news about my exams results and achieving a credit. It was clearly worth all the late nights studying and approaching the course with the right attitude. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and I am really looking forward to attending the environmental management course. The experience will be the next contributing factor to the results I have gained to date.”

“Woke up to news that I passed my Nebosh construction…I strongly recommend BV associates and the instructors.”

Blaine Marie
HM Forces (Army)

“This NEBOSH course was run extremely well with the instructor who delivered the course having excellent knowledge and experience. He was always happy to help and explain if you did not grasp the subject fully. I intend to use this provide again and I will be recommending them to my colleagues to use in the future.”

“I highly recommend BV Associates as the best Health and Safety training provider. Don’t waste your time and money with any other provider if you want the best training and chance of passing first time.”

Liam Jones
Royal Engineers

“We’ve just finished a week of Mental Health training with BV Associates Ltd who trained 80 of our staff over 4 sessions. They never fail to deliver exceptional training regardless of the subject. I will admit I was nervous putting myself on the course with 79 of my own staff but BVA gave me an overview when we booked the training and sent their trainer to explain what the course involved (at no extra cost I should add).

Feedback from those who attended and on returning to work states that they felt that there was an immediate culture change. My managers reported that they felt armed with the information to, above anything else, listen – they understand that we are merely supporting and signposting – not asking them to be qualified counsellors.

We had jumped on board after speaking to other companies who had spearheaded the qualification who can all show a demonstrable increase in productivity, a happier workforce and a desire to want to go to work (even the management team!). We look forward to our own results as we continue to grow as a business, together.

Sceptical at first, I now realise it’s not soft skills – it is merely putting the needs of your most important asset first whilst understanding that everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses working towards the same collective outcome.”

Mental Health Student BVA
Business Owner

“A brilliant course delivered in a professional way. This course content, along with the qualification, set me up for a career in health and safety which I am still progressing in now.”

James McPhie

“BV Associates, have been very helpful at all stages of my learning, from helping choose the right suitable courses for my chosen field and assisting me with the booking and ECLAS process whilst I was abroad. The support is first rate! The instructors are very professional and deliver the subject in a way so all students are involved and varied learning strategies are considered for all forms of student learning, I highly recommend them.”

Steve Salter
Warrant Officer (Army)

“BV Associates are a very professional organisation and I fully recommend them for the future.”

Steve Frost

“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.”

John Stokes-Whittaker BSc (Hons) FCMI
Senior Manager

“BVA are a very good training provider in my eyes, so much so I’ve constantly recommended them since finishing my training with them!”

Robert Todd
Service Leaver

“Contact with all BV Associates staff was professional, productive and pleasant. The course was delivered effectively and entertainingly, and the support offered to students exceeded that necessary for just the course content, sometimes verging on consultancy! The whole experience was positive and enjoyable. I got exactly that which I needed, and I am very grateful.”

Peter Harris
Squadron Leader (RAF)

“The course material and delivery by BV Associates was very good, I would highly recommend them to any one looking for similar courses. The instructors are all ex-military so they understand the best way of transferring the information to service and ex-service personnel.”

Robert King
MOD

“I really enjoyed this course. It had a steep learning curve but the company and the instructors were brilliant. We received immediate feedback, any and all questions were answered on the spot and if they didn’t know the answer they would get back to us as soon as possible. I would highly recommend this provider for anyone considering a NEBOSH course.”

Richard Caverley
Service Leaver

I have so far completed my General, Fire and Environmental courses with BV. I have had no problems at all with any of the administration and information is free flowing in both directions. The staff are always willing to help. The courses are delivered in such a way that you understand and the knowledge retention methods are second to none. Exam techniques are also mentioned to assist anyone who has doubts. I am just about to book a five year update for the General Certificate and again no problems getting on the courses or getting details.

Overall a great experience which has now spanned over 8 years with many more to come I’m sure.”

Paul Gibbon

“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!”

Steve Salter

“From booking the course to finally gaining my results, BV have been outstanding. Booking the relevant courses with Claire was so straight forward – she helps you through everything you are required to do for the courses and made the process so simple. All the administration was delivered to a high professional standard. Health and safety is not going to go away, so by gaining the NEBOSH qualifications individuals will enhance their understanding and employers can use it to make any workplace safe.”
