I researched a lot of online health and safety courses in Ireland but found this to be the best choice.

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.
