  1. Legionella & Legionaires awareness course


    Not a bad course, very basic and not very time consuming. Just how I like them especially with the limited time i have at the moment working full time.

  2. A Decent overview


    the course does what it says on the tin and is fair for the price, it will not go into depth on the testing of legionella but it will describe what legionella is, how it grows, how to prevent it, and all legal guidelines for those involved.
