                                For the private student:

                                only by motivation and ambition.
                                For the company:
                                Many of the courses offered are in standard form, however, most can be tailored in content and duration to
                                suit individual company needs both in-centre and on-site.
                                Many of the courses can be taken in combination, this can be especially beneficial for overseas clients
                                wishing to make the most of their training programmes.
                                When training is being considered, the range of courses we offer, our flexibility and quality of service are
                                second to none. A major factor is that our pricing policies remain as competitive as ever and with the existing
                                customer discount scheme relating to course provision, clients are able to obtain quality training at very cost
                                effective levels.

                                Specific accreditation is held by Argyll-Ruane for PCN and ICorr courses, in addition to a number of
