Course Reviews

The standard of classrooms, level of equipment and the facilities provided (even down to the free tea and coffee) were first class! Each practical work area was fully equipped with everything required for the lesson. There was absolutely nothing missing! Tim Morris, our tutor, was obviously a vastly experienced engineer. When I came to the course I was anxious about how I would get on, but Tim was very re-assuring and by his clear explanations, deep insight and practical experience, built confidence as the course developed. Top marks for Tim! To cap it all, the reception staff were efficient, helpful and welcoming! I have been on many training courses throughout my life-time - his was easily the best! I'm now 76, but I wouldn't hesitate to try another course with Technique. Thank you!
