"I thought the instructors were great-very patient, engaged enthusiastically with the subject matter and always keen to pass on the knowledge to the students. The practical set-up was totally user friendly and the hands- on approach was more than suitably in depth. I really enjoyed getting on the tools and really getting stuck in with all the various elements of the system. I'm about to move to Germany in a couple of weeks to work on their internet backbone upgrade as a trainee fibre engineer. I'll keep you posted and will definitely be back for more courses once I've gained some work experience.”
The trainers were extremely knowledgeable and adept, where more detail was requested they were able to provide it professionally.
Within a few days of completing (3667-02) I had an interview, I have now been offered an engineering position there and start next week.
Excellent course, tutor and staff. Very knowledgeable and helpful. Facilities are really good!
“Everything was made relevant to my questions, and aims were set out at the beginning of the course”………. “Excellent training.”
