NEBOSH, The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health, has announced that Portsmouth Training Company PETA Ltd have produced the top performing candidate of 2016/17.
Timothy Compton, an Environmental, Health and Safety Engineer at Marchwood Power’s gas-fired power station, won the Best Candidate Award for the NEBOSH Certificate of Environmental Management in 2016/17.
Timothy, when informed by a letter from the Chief Executive of NEBOSH, said; “I was delighted to find out I was top in the country. I knew I had done well but didn’t expect to be first! The course was interesting and well-delivered and PETA’s Amanda Jelley, my sole tutor, made it informative and enjoyable.”
Amanda, who is a Trainer/Adviser for PETA’s Safety, Health and Environmental Training Team, said: “Tim has done so well, I am so proud of his achievement. I am delighted by the result – there are around 500 delegates a year for the NEBOSH Certificate of Environmental Management and Tim’s achievement is brilliant and really well-deserved.”
Indeed, Tim’s achievement will be recognized at an awards ceremony in July, at the University of Warwick, which will be attended by Martin Temple, CBE, Chair of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
PETA Ltd has one of the highest pass rates for NEBOSH qualifications, well above the national average – a record that PETA Director Bob Hiskey is justly proud of: “I am extremely delighted for Timothy to see his determination and hard work rewarded. And it also reflects well on PETA’s quality of teaching, so huge credit and congratulations must go to our own Amanda Jelley, she done herself and our training organisation proud… A terrific outcome and so rewarding to be recognised – very well done Amanda.”
