A FEW WORDS FROM JOHN WEAVER CONTRACTORS ON THEIR EMPLOYER EXPERIENCE:
“Training received via NPTC Group has always been first class.
My dealings with Robert in regard to the availability and the arrangement of training courses have been both easy and pleasant.
At the present time eight of our PAYE Carpenters have attended a fire door fitters course both theory and practical and four of our Site / Project Managers plus myself have attended the supervisors course more will attend in due course.
Feedback from attendees has been excellent with all saying that Roy Evans, who delivers the theory (awareness) training, has a passion and excellent knowledge in regard to the course making it a pleasant and worthwhile experience when attending. Also Anthony Richards, who invigilates and assesses the fitting (practical) element, is very helpful and informative.
The same can be said for the EFAW courses our employees have attended at the College with attendees providing feedback informing of an excellent, well presented course.”
