About Cortex Training & Development

Cortex Training & Development is a partnership of health and safety professionals formed in 2017 in Brunei Darussalam to provide high-quality training products and consultancy services to the local and regional market. After gaining a wealth of industry experience, the founders at Cortex Training & Development saw a significant lack of health and safety training and consultancy organisations that put their customer’s needs first. Cortex Training & Development was therefore founded with the understanding of the importance of its role as a training provider, where the needs of learners are at the heart of that understanding.

At the organisational level, we aspire to be the preferred HSE training and solutions provider by solving our clients' health and safety problems with realistic and practical solutions that save lives and increase their profits. On the individual level, we believe that safe behaviour can be influenced. Therefore, as health and safety professionals, while playing our role in developing HSE leaders, we must lead by example. Our work is more than just about training - a safer workplace starts with us.

Cortex Training & Development is a SHENA Approved Training Provider and delivers NEBOSH, IOSH, CIEH and general health and safety courses to businesses and individuals.
