Course Reviews

Good course, lots of explanation all on subjects and the practical exercises were very rewarding. Excellent trainer.

George - Open System Engineer - Finance - October 2017


Having previously undertaken a similar course in the past I expected this course to not be especially beneficial, however this was not the case at all. I have garnered some very useful new skills and knowledge. The trainer's subject knowledge and delivery are a credit to himself and Stayahead. I was constantly engaged and rarely found myself requiring a repeat of the coursework but when needed he was more than helpful in explaining where I was struggling.

Laurence - Operations Support - Finance


The course was set at a good pace and the course content was structured very well. The facilities within the training complex were excellent!! The staff were very professional & helpful & the food was of a very high standard. Very happy with my 3 days on the course.

Stewart - Technical Specialist - Automotive
