Don’t just take our word for it, see what our clients say about our online training courses

I have been looking to do E-learning for ages, but didn’t know where to go to access it. I like the flexibility of them, as I have two small children, so I fit the learning in around them with no worries of child care. I left school with no GCSE’s and was feeling depressed about my lack of skills and felt as though I was destined for a no hope job, but volunteering at our Community Centre has change my views. I am getting experience plus a wide range courses have been made available to me. I am determined to get a good job and I plan to learn as much as I can the best that I can. The courses are easy to access and easily understood, plus they have helpful things for you to download for future reference.
The National Training Academy are the training centre that I use to put all my learners through in regards to accredited training courses. I have been working with TNTA for the last 24 months and they provide an excellent service. The National Training Academy is not only dynamic but is also very responsive when I have questions about the process in which I need to follow. They always deliver on time which gives me and my business the confidence I need in which to grow and develop. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the courses and service to potential customers.
