Here are a few reviews from Ex Military staff

This course is excellent value for money. From having little to no understanding of the subject to the position I’m in now, is fantastic. The learning provider is always happy to answer any and all questions and will happily answer and clear up and points that may be confusing. The group size
is perfect and the ability to get 1 on 1 tutoring is there. This course should be more highly advertised for soldiers wishing to get into this industry using their resettlement entitlements.
Thank you DETA2000.
15 Day Refrigeration course- D McCracken – MOD Sept 2018

At the start of this course i informed the learning provider that i was dyslexic. this did not cause any problems at all. they catered for me by following the certification bodys guidlines. they made every effort to ensure that i could understand what i had to do and read and explained, when
needed, any questions i had to answer. this massively increased my confidence and i was able to focus on actually learning and not trying to read or decipher questions.i highly recommend this learning provider.
15 day refrigeration course – M Swift- Sept 18

The training provider took me from a complete novice with no experience in this industry, to a fully qualified competent/qualified engineerin a very short period of time. The training and support I received was excellent and I would highly recommend this training provider to any individual interested in this industry. 

R.Daly – 15-day refrigeration course -MOD – 2018 

Just completed the 15-day RAC Course. Very informative and helpful course to help get into the industry. Dave, the instructor, was very helpful and knowledgeable and knew how to make everyone understand about the principles of Refrigeration and A/C. Top bloke! Would definitely recommend.
D Armstrong 15-day refrigeration course -MOD – 2017

Just finished 15-day air conditioning and refrigeration course, fantastic course coming from only knowing how to open a fridge/freezer, Dave has an excellent range of knowledge of the industry and the equipment used. More than plenty of ‘hands on’ time, would definitely recommend this course to anyone. Look forward to taking what i’ve learnt forward with me into the industry.
J Ord 15-day refrigeration course – MOD- 2018

I have just been on a refrigeration course and was one of the best courses I have been on.
I done a years training in refrigeration and air conditioning and I have learnt more here than I ever did in my training. From the word go they have been extremely professional and very helpful so thank you HAL training and thank you Dave for putting on such a good course.
