what customers say about us


" After the local authority announced the cut in training for me, I panicked. LMC approached me and instantly knew they could provide my training. I have also gained a free training manager to give me peace of mind that my training is in hand. Thank you LMC"


" Thank you LMC for completing our Half Day inspection, the planning that you've shown a time given to our new baby room has been fantastic. It's been great to have a fresh set of eyes to look at our nursery. Will be booking a full day Inspection soon.
