About Us

Who better to teach you than experienced lecturers with up-to-date, relevant and extensive on-site experience?

We have highly skilled lecturers; even our Managing Director has years of practical experience, as well as technical knowhow, and is still actively involved with site work. This allows us to relate classroom learning to real world scenarios. Our lecturers have a wide range of experience involving installations and maintenance in domestic, commercial, and industrial settings.

Our approach to learning is slightly different to some other providers; we believe you should actually enjoy the experience. For this reason, we foster an easy-going atmosphere set in comfortable surroundings, which we believe makes the process of learning much easier and above all more enjoyable. If you combine this with the fact that we limit our class sizes to allow more one and one time with the tutor,  you come up with the secret to our students’ success.
