Lee Burden an Ex MoD service leaver has a lot to smile about not only did he obtain a distinction in all three NEBOSH Courses that make up the MOD Full House package he also picked up a job offer whilst on the course.
Here is Lee’s story:
I found CRS at a Resettlement Fair at the beginning of 2013, which was held at the Greetham Valley Hotel in Rutland. I decided to carry out my Resettlement Training with CRS because they provided everything I wanted, and they were very helpful and professional in doing so.
I used my ELC for the Full House Package that CRS provide for the MOD, which consisted of the NEBOSH National General Certificate in Occupational H&S, Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate and the Environmental Management Certificate. I had an excellent experience whilst on all of the courses, which were conducted at the York Novotel within the mid third of 2013. The instructors were great with brilliant knowledge and real time experience, and they were also willing to provide additional training in the evenings if it was required. I achieved Distinction for all three qualifications so the proof is in the pudding. I would highly recommend CRS for any H&S training, so much so that I have booked my IOSH SHE Auditing and NVQ Level 5 Diploma with them for Continual Professional Development.
Whilst on my Environmental Management Course, I met the HR and Safety Assurance Director of Abellio Greater Anglia. About half way through the course we were discussing my current situation and plans for the future. At that point she offered me a work placement on the Safety and Environment Team which I immediately accepted. The work placement was a 6 week attachment to the Safety and Environment Team as a Compliance Auditor. Over the 6 week period I did 27 station audits, attended an Environmental Aspects Workshop and a number of Manager Meetings, gained experience in Report Writing and made some great friends along the way. It has benefitted me greatly as I have secured a position at the Ilford Engineering Depot as a Safety, Quality and Environment support Specialist.
Following my latest successes, my wife and I have decided that we will stay in Suffolk rather than moving back to Pontefract in West Yorkshire where I’m originally from. We feel it is a great place to start a family and enjoy our lives. An additional bonus of living in Suffolk is the amount of XC Mountain bike races that are held in and around the area. I take part in as many of them as I have time for, but I have a long way to go before I keep up with the Elite Group. My family are very happy and proud of what I have achieved, however my Father and Grandfather were shocked when I didn’t follow their footsteps by working in the local glass factory.
I am very excited to get started in my new job on the 17th February. I have a lot to thank Corporate Risk Systems and the Abellio Greater Anglia’s S&E Team for, and I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for them.
