  • As far as I am concerned EPIT have done an excellent job at making everyone feel safe when entering their training facilities and should be recognised for their efforts.

    Well done EPIT for all your hard work at keeping everyone safe when at your training centre.

    EPIT appears to have looked very closely at the Government guide lines and they have applied them with rigour through out the training centre.

    Everything from socially distancing measured in the classroom and workshop right through to the catering and welfare facilities. Hand sanitiser is readily available through out the whole building and people are encouraged to use it.
