In LCE we want our clients to walk away from our training courses thinking “that was one of the best courses I have been on” or as 98% of our attendees tell us “I would recommend that course to my colleagues”.

We try to maintain the highest standards in our training courses and professional services. So much so one of our most common feedback comments from training is: “Really enjoyed the training, the informal approach and the knowledge of the trainers”

When it comes to consultancy, we want our clients to know that they have received the most practical advice and the best solution for them – and we believe that is why 80% of LCE business is associated with client referrals or clients returning again and again for practical, professional solutions. As a result, we have been consistently growing and developing new services and courses since 2001.

LCE consultants and trainers are a dedicated group of professionals who are experts in their field and whose focus is to ensure they always add value to an organisation. For example, the trainers that present our IOSH Certificate in Managing Safely courses, not only are experienced health and safety professionals, but have also held management positions at senior levels, the consultants who provide advice on ATEX have worked in some of the most hazardous conditions possible such as mining– we think this level of competence is important – don’t you?

So whenever you work with LCE be confident that you are getting some of the best, most competent consultants and trainers available.

Our Mission Statement:

"Exceed customer expectations and redefine the perception of consultancy services"
