Hear from our customers

I have recently completed the Solar PV & Battery Energy Storage package with Activate Trade Training, the delivery was professional and engaging. Paul, our trainer, has clearly worked in the industry and is very experienced as a tutor. It’s nice when you know the person guiding you through the course material has in fact turned a screwdriver or two themselves in relation to the subject matter. More often than not with these types of courses, we, the trainee are just talked at, whilst the lecturer clicks through PowerPoint slides. That is definitely not the case with Activate Trade Training. We had professional group discussions on key topics / points of interest led by the trainer for relevance which kept the course interesting and informative. My notes made during class and completed assignments resulted in a ‘Pass’. Thanks Paul, keep up the good work, I will be using Activate Trade Training again for sure.

I have done several courses with Activate Trade Training and have always had a great experience. The teachers are friendly and always really helpful and I always come out of their centre feeling as though I learned something valuable.

Activate Trade Training is an excellent place to learn your electrical skills. I went there as a beginner and have built up my qualifications over the past year and am now working full time in the industry. Their facility is warm and friendly and the tutors are very skilled at helping you learn the subject matter. I would highly recommend this company to learn your trade.

Chana Singhe

I recently completed the Level 2 and 3 Electrical Diploma Courses with Activate Trade Training, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my experience. The tutors were exceptional, providing clear, comprehensive instruction and practical insights. They were always available to answer questions and offer guidance. Additionally, the career support was outstanding. They helped me build a professional CV and connected me with potential employers. Thanks to their support, I successfully secured a job shortly after completing my courses. I highly recommend Activate Trade Training to anyone looking to advance their career in the electrical field.
