Level 3 EML (Bill – Trainer)

The guys really enjoyed the course last week. They all mentioned that they learned heaps and that the trainer was really easy to understand/get along with.
Really stoked that they took something away from it, considering a few were a bit apprehensive at the beginning!

Gas Detection (Nick – Trainer)
The feedback I have had from the guys was very positive, and they all learned something that they didn’t previously know about the monitors (myself included). And it was pitched at a good level so everyone could engage.

Basic Clearance, Avoidance & Verification, Level 3 EML, Level 3 GPR (Bill – Trainer)
My team got a lot out of your courses, the feedback has been that Bill the teacher was fantastic, and the training helped bring a more formulated and thorough way of locating, than the way they’ve been operating.

Megan Weir, Director

Basic Clearance, Avoidance & Verification Course (Bill – Trainer)
Last week’s session went very well from what I saw and heard. The guys all enjoyed it and learnt a lot. We did a practical exercise down the road and everyone I spoke with after said it was worthwhile.

Thermal Imaging (Mark – Trainer)
Highly recommend Accurate Instruments for all your tools, knowledge, and Training. Have bought several of their moisture reader products and thermal imagery cameras for our Business. They are always informative and attentive to our needs. Not only do they provide products with great knowledge, but they also assisted us with some “Online Training” for ‘introduction to thermal imagery’, seeing to our needs since we could attend in person. The team and Trainers Mark and Bill were very helpful, answering all our questions and providing great knowledge and on-the-ground tips. Jackie at head office is always swift and attentive to any questions we had regarding the course and process. Can’t fault them, highly recommend.
