100% Satisfaction. I was tempted to use a different training provider for this course. I’m so glad I didn’t. Colin, Peter and Nick are some of the most experienced trainers I have used. They know the standards and regulations like the back of there hand. If you are a sparky or plumber looking to up-skill, I would 100% recommend using Get Skilled Training as the support and expertise you gain from their staff are second to none.
