The Ayrton Group provided Linesight with a number of in-house Covid-19 Lead Worker Representative training sessions through CitA Skillnet Ireland. I found them extremely flexible and adaptable to our needs. Links, materials and certificates were all sent in a timely manner. The trainers provided by Ayrton were knowledgeable and engaging and the feedback from participants was very positive. I would have no hesitation in using the Ayrton Group again.
