Testimonials

  • Patrick Evans

    The Skills Training experience for me was a very delightful one even though it had its challenges. Although I knew a little about mechanics the course Automotive Vehicle Engineering assisted me to understand on a broader scale what mechanics is really about, both the practical and the theory.

    At the end of the course I was given the opportunity to begin a job attachment at Nassco Ltd where I have been employed for the last three and a half years.
