"Manual Handling Training: I attended one of Qualtec's Manual Handling Instructor Training courses earlier this year in Maynooth, Co. Kildare. It was presented by Mr Sean Kelleher over duration of 5 days. From start to finish the highest quality and standard of presentationmaterial was used along with an excellent guest speaker Mr Gill whoagain portrayed the height of professionalism. The one thing I found unique about the course was Sean's method of teaching. His use of examples and scenarios were excellent. Hisknowledge and experience is vast and very relevant to the message being portrayed. My experience of dealing with Qualtec is that they are a veryprofessional organisation with a very strong customer care ethic. I amlooking forward to attending many more of their courses in the very nearfuture. Our own company have used Qualtec in relation to Health andSafety consultation and would highly recommend them for the provision ofthis service."
