What Our Students Say About Us

I researched a lot of online health and safety courses in Ireland but found this to be the best choice. It was important for me to continue my studies and do a recognised health and safety course and doing it by attending online classes was perfect. As I live abroad, it allowed me to obtain a recognised level 7 occupational health and safety management diploma.

This health and safety officer course was really enjoyable and is definitely worthwhile for anyone wishing to work in a good job with a good salary. The online classes were very convenient and this health and safety course based out of Dublin meant i could contact CMI anytime knowing i was speaking directly to the course tutor, or their support team..

I had looked at various health and safety degree courses in Ireland but found they took at least 3 years. This health and safety course from CMI Ireland allowed me to obtain a occupational health and safety management diploma in a shorter time frame. It gave me what i needed to get a job as a health and Safety officer in a well known construction firm in Dublin. I would recommend this online health and safety course to anyone.
