Experience + Flexibility

We know training inside out. We can advise you on all the options to make sure you get the best possible course.

Tell us you need to cancel more than 7 days before your course and there's no charge. Great for your peace of mind.

Our trainers bring their years of industry experience into the classroom. You'll leave confident and prepared.

The smallest class size in the industry. More one on one time with the trainer and a less intimidating group size.

Tell us which you use and it'll be booted up and waiting with the latest software when you arrive.

We provide a lovely onsite lunch so you can relax. We can cater for any dietary requirement with no fuss.

Our Clients

We've worked very hard over the last 20 years to grow our business through personal recommendations.

When you attend a course we ask you to tell us how it went. We use your feedback to help us improve our courses.

We publish all our customer satisfaction stats live on our site (good or bad) because we want everyone to know just how highly you rate us every day, every week and every year.

We know that choosing the best course can be difficult, maybe the thoughts of the 20423 other clients we've asked will give you the inspiration to join us too.

The most recent comments from attendees of our courses are shown below. We reckon they will give you a pretty good indication of how they think we perform.
