Course Reviews

A good course and training provider. I would highly recommend to others. Thank you for your support.

The classroom was cold and they kept turning the heating off. Leslie was the best instructor I've had at Technique, very knowledgeable and great at breaking things down and explaining them to me. PAT testers are old and dated.

The course lecturer Andy was very good in teaching the subject, he made it a good laugh aswell keeping people engaged, he was very supportive and answered all our questions. I Was happy with the length in training however for others with no experience it could be seen as too short. The facilities and lunch were very good. I was impressed with the service provided and I plan on returning for courses at a later date. Thanks
