Health & Safety / First Aid The courses in Health & Safety and First Aid are suitable for workers in any industry. These can also be adapted for rural situations. Courses catering for more specialised activities such as Paediatric First Aid and Safe use of Veterinary medicines are also available.

Food Safety / Hygiene Proprietors of food businesses must ensure that food handlers engaged in the food business are trained, instructed and/or supervised in issues of food hygiene. These courses provide the necessary food hygiene knowledge to meet this requirement and are suitable for food handlers and supervisors.

Tractors and Industrial Tractors and lift trucks are essential tools for many businesses. To use them effectively and safely, it is essential that operators are adequately trained. The courses available are suitable for users in a wide range of work environments.

ATVs and Off-highway ATVs and off-highway vehicles are essential tools for many land-based businesses. To use them effectively and safely, it is essential that operators are adequately trained. Training for recreational off-road driving is also available.

Forestry, Estate maintenance and Conservation Forestry, estate maintenance and conservation activities involves knowledge and use of a wide range of tools and skills. The courses provide appropriate training in forestry and groundcare equipment such as chainsaws, brushcutters, mowers, elevated platforms, etc. Other courses provide skills in woodland management and Cornish hedging.

Pesticide Spraying / Vermin Control Pesticides are widely used in land-based industries. Because they are potentially harmful substances, it's essential that they are handled, applied and stored properly. Courses are available at foundation and advanced levels to cover tractor and knapsack spraying.
Courses are also available in vermin control, aimed at control of rats, mice, rabbits and moles.

Workshop Skills Abrasive wheels are essential tools in many industries. Inexperience or carelessness in the use of these tools can be very dangerous. Courses are available aimed at novices and operators with more experience.
A wide variety of tools in use within land-based industries are powered by small engines and it's essential to keep them operating safely and efficiently. The course in Small Engine Maintenance is designed to address this need.
