I received confirmation from the university today regarding transfer credits. Again, fantastic news based on METI quality courses.

METI has been the best training I have taken to date and since has helped me toward achieving my goals. IE CRSP designation (2014) and will complete my Degree in OHS over the next 6 months due to the quality of training METI provided and transfer credits allotted based on the high standards.”


At a moments Notice Joe and Staff were able to supply my company Phoenix Safety and Rescue with the most top notched professional safety people that I could have ever asked for. I have nothing but great reviews for the caliber and quality of people being put forward by METI. I would highly recommend using this establishment when you are ever in dire need of people, whether it be rescue, safety watch, safety advisors or air hands. Hoping to do much, much more through METI in the immediate future!
