Thanks John Little for providing a thorough and entertaining carpentry course. I really enjoyed my 4 days and feel I gained a massive benefit from this. Im now confident enough to do most wood working jobs around the house. Many thanks and keep up the good work!!
Philip Wimpenny - Intensive Weekend Carpentry Course
It doesn’t matter how old you are, there will always be a place for education and self improvement to gain a new career. I’m 37 and I did it ! I was a HGV driver, now I’m working as a plumbers mate on a better salary. It has also given me a better work life balance so I have more quality time with my children. CBWA is the place to go for training.
Kieran Jackson - Level 2 Plumbing Course
This course was outstanding as I couldn’t plaster before and 4 months later I’m working self employed. I am in the process of setting my company ‘G2 tiling and Plastering’ up. I can’t thank the team at CBWA enough for their encouragement and support in achieving my qualifications and career aspirations.
Gaining this qualification has opened up new opportunities to grow my self employed domestic installer business. I enjoyed the learning and the tutor was very professional so I would highly recommend CBWA.
Jordan Millerchip - Level 3 Electrical Course
Gaining this qualification has enabled me to increase my day rate to the industry rate for my plumbing work rather than a lower rate. I am nearly earning enough that I will not have to claim universal credit. It has helped me grow my landlord portfolio by 50%, from 6 to 9 now having me as their preferred service supplier.
Thevarajah Norbet - Level 2 Plumbing Course
Good atmosphere, friendly staff and students. Plenty of amenities. Learn’t some really valuable skills from a tutor with over 40 years experience in the trade. Great price for 5 days training. I would recommend anyone to learn a skill at CBWA.
Chris Coles - Intensive Welding Course
Just completed the intensive plumbing course. Had a great time, learn’t a lot! I’m so much more confident with plumbing. Lee (the tutor) really doesn’t get enough praise, he’s amazingly knowledgable, patient and takes the time to go through anything you don’t understand or need to practice. Highly recommended.
