What our candidates really think...


  • Working full time I didnt think I'd be able to find a course to suit, but Get Training's long distance learning course has enabled me to work and study at the same time! The e-learning package is user friendly and a great start to understanding all the subjects and the practical workshops give me the confidence I need to get out working in the gas industry.
