  4. Mateo Jokic

    One of the best training that I attended in offshore career. Mr. Stuart has shown huge experience in both HVAC and Oil and Gas sector, which explains his good approach toward students. Complete course is orientated toward Marine and Oil and Gas sector, which means all examples and training content is real and applicable in practice. Course is divided in two parts, theory and practice. Personally I have found both highly useful and Mr. Stuart approach was great while teaching both. Mateo 10/01/2020

  5. Samuel Asiedu-Okantah Jnr

    The course has been very beneficial, the practicals is carefully crafted to give a firm grasp of the theoretical aspect. I have benefited immensely. Samuel 20/12/2019

  6. Jordan Hodge

    Stuart has great knowledge and experience in HVAC and he passes this on in the classroom. You will finish the course with a good understanding of the various refrigeration systems we come across and practical skills that you can use on the job. I have already recommended this course to others. Jordan Hodge 10/08/2020

  7. Jarco Hekman

    Good course if you want to learn more about refrigeration. It good to learn how to recover fix and fill a system up with refrigerant and actually doing it as well. (practical) I heard about this course from a friend and would recommend it. Jake Hekman 14/08/2020

  8. Adrian Bukmanis

    While there are plenty of ways to learn the theory, for me the most benefit comes from spending time with people who have been there and done that. Stuart definitely fits in this category and his real-world experience across diverse equipment systems and his willingness to share his experience as part of the course was something of real value. Like many others this was a friends recommendation. Adrian Bukmanis 14/08/2020

  9. Xavier Le Monnier

    I found the course very informative and tailored to study required, the pre course training i did was definitely worth the study time and cost when it came to the practical work.
