training and news

One of the most important aspects of what we do is helping you understand your industry. Our trainers maintain links with the electrical, communications, mechanical and air conditioning industries through their own contracting businesses. Our trainers are also installers. They also go to the relevant Training Advisory Council meetings to keep up with training package developments.

So here are some articles that we hope will help you in your day to day activities.
