We have classes 5 day’s a week and we’re open nearly 50 week’s a year, so there will be no interruption to your training.

New Website Is live!

Our last website did great to get us to this stage, however it was now over 9 years old and needed updating. I have had a few issues with getting it live due to issues with it routing to another server. I am hoping that we now have a fully Functioning website.

I will be adding more features in the coming week so please bear with me. Some of the features I will be adding is a section for students study material and a safe place for you to ask questions.

Thank you.
