Course Reviews

I attended Technique Learning solutions from the 6th April through to 23rd April at their Holmewood, Chesterfield Facility. All in all it was an incredible experience, 5 star from start to finish. I was doing the TARC15 course, since I had travelled over from Belfast, I thought I might as well do it all in one hit. Pete and Steve, the tutors are two great guys who know their stuff. Pete did the Total Air Conditioning and Refrigeration course (10 days in total), while Steve, did the 18th Edition Wiring Regulations, Essential Electrics and The Refrigeration electrics (5 days in total) The Facility and staff were excellent, always willing to help out …(especially when the coffee machine jammed up) In the Facility, there is a large Coffee vending Machine, with free tea and coffee and a minimal charge for other hot drinks, there is also a Snack Vending Machine as well. Lunch was great (outside catering, I believe), not once in the three weeks did I think, “I’ll give that a miss next time” When you sign in on the ipad each morning, you select your lunch from the menu on the wall above it and like stated on their website, Lunch is included in the price of your course. The guys in the Office kept the place very clean, with multiple disinfecting occurring throughout the day in the Common areas. I would totally recommend Technique Learning Solutions and wouldn’t hesitate in doing more courses with them in the future, but for now, I shall return to The Bahamas 😊… the heat….to the sun.
