SOME OF THE ORGANISATIONS THAT WE’VE WORKED WITH
“I've done lots of courses like this at many different training companys, most of the time its some old bloke that can't work so he teaches. Doesn't care if you fail or pass, just there to read word for word out of the book and push you out the door. Not at training ahead, our trainer Josh was fantastic, knew so much information helped with any questions very clear and easy to understand you could tell he was there to help and get you the pass! Absolutely legends 10/10 training ahead!”- Josh Clark,
