IMPORTANT PLEASE READ The certificate provided on the course indicates attendance only. This course is not an accredited qualification course. Course content is only suitable to support participants to do basic servicing and maintenance of their own machines and it doesn’t qualify delegates to be able to teach others how to service and maintain machines, nor does it qualify participants to service and maintain machines for other people. Skills and knowledge gained significantly reduce maintenance costs but doesn't remove the need for external servicing when needed. The course content must not be used in any way on a commercial basis.  See bottom of home page for T&Cs, including cancellations.
