I completed my University degree in Environmental Health and began my career with AEC in 2002 as a Trainee Analyst /Surveyor.I have been privileged to have been part of some major projects all over the UK and Dubai during my air testing, surveying and project management roles and its thanks to the training programme AEC put me on. I received great mentoring as part of my career development and it made me realise that I wanted to work towards a teaching role.  I have trained people all over the UK and lucky to travel to Dubai and the Philippines to deliver classroom training. Since Covid I have also been able to train people in Vietnam, South Korea, New Zealand, USA, Australia, India, Pakistan, Singapore, China and Thailand thanks to remote training technology.



Kellie Naughton, Training Manager

AEC, since the start of my placement, provided me with vast experience related to how the asbestos industry works and giving me support and opportunities that no other company could give me and making me feel part of the team of the permanent staff. With qualifications such as p402 and transferrable skills training like confined space training and MEWP. The company provided me with a path towards my construction industry career.

Sebastian Ryozewski. Huddersfield University Student – January 2024

From start to finish, I’ve felt like a valued member of the team as if I were a permanent member of staff. Hence, they’ve given the opportunity to gain specific practical skills such as MEWP, confined space training and further qualifications (P402). Not many undergrads will have these to put on their CV!  AEC have understood what is intended from a placement year and without doubt developed my employability and given me a genuinely fun year working away.


Guy Household. Plymouth University Student - July 2015

The variety of work and the constant evolution of my role at AEC has always given me the opportunity to develop and grow. Particularly, teaching provides great satisfaction, both witnessing delegates passing their exams and seeing other AEC staff grow and forge their own paths of development through the business.

Daniel Shuttleworth. Quality and Laboratory Manager
