''We have been a customer of MTR for the past 5 years.Initially chosen because they provided a range of services not avaible from other providers we considered.All at a competitive price.We retain their services because they provide a total staff assessment,onbourding and training solution.There are always improvements as regulations or in-house requirements alter.But we have found MTR to never be more than a question away from addressing and implementing our training needs. ''

''Training is everything. I used MTR at my previous company so when I joined Susesea 3 years ago I convinced the management to use them. My reasons were that they provide everything I need for our training needs now and from what I regularly see, in the future too. From my years of experience, MTR is very helpful and responsive. My last request was handled in just an hour. As training is everything within our company, I'd recommend any training manager, safety manager or ISM to consider them. ''
