WC Clive Thomas Mitchell August 2019
The staff were knowledgeable and professional and training was delivered in an effective manner. The Course has given me the skills and knowledge that I require to undertake a number of DIY tasks in my home. I would definitely recommend the course to those Service leavers looking to improve skills in property maintenance. The additional days of tuition over other courses are important to hone newly acquired skills.box >>
