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 >>
