“I would highly recommend STC for training, the service they provide is quick, effective, helpful and they are a pleasure to deal with, nothing is too much or too little for them to help and advise us with. Also a massive compliment for us and STC was during the last couple of HSE audits at our site, the HSE have actually complimented us on our incident management and our emergency response team.”

M.Prior, Head of Security

“Thank you for all your help. We are still talking about how great that system was and how it made the job so much easier. It was that reassurance of safety when you needed it. You all where so professional and obviously knew what you where doing which gave us total confidence in you as a team.”
