I agree the electrical training has been a success with all concerned feeling confident they have learnt from the course. It has also offered the business an independent verification of skills as a bonus.

Another major benefit has been for our apprentices, they have been able to take theoretical learning from there ongoing studies and apply in a practical format during the MCP training gaining a better understanding.
