One local who took part on a previous course said:

“I thought the course was excellent.  It has given me the knowledge and confidence to use a lot of different tools safely and proficiently.  The theory side was explained and taught in an easy to understand manner, which made it interesting to learn.  Our tutor has been excellent throughout the course making the whole course thoroughly enjoyable.

“I would recommend this course to anyone.”

Limited spaces are available.
