I recently used Skills Training Group for the reassessment of my ACS. All the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. The centre itself is set up perfectly with a great selection of appliances required to complete my course. Classrooms are well sized and comfortable and was made very welcome. Would recommend them to anyone wishing to get reassessed or even getting their first qualifications.

I came to Skills Training (Paisley) to… Initial ACS 10/10

I came to Skills Training (Paisley) to do my initial ACS again.This is the 3rd time I've used STG twice for domestic gas resits and this time to do the initial again due to letting my qualifications lapse. Each time I've have had an excellent experience and as always found the staff very informative and helpful. I'm back in next week to redo the unvented hot water course and know the experience will be just as good as every experience so far. So thank you all at STG. I will always recommend your services.

I carried out the water regulations and heat pumps course at skills training group. This was 4 days which was very interesting and helped me widen my skills and knowledge. Thanks to Paul who took the course making sure everybody was managing it at the same pace and making you feel comfortable to flag something up if you were unsure about it and taking time to explain it and talk you through it.

Completed my first aid course a few days ago, and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. It was easy to book and very affordable. Allan was fab, very knowledgeable and great at engaging with all of the class. The facilities are great too and easily to find with parking just close to the venue. All in all I would 100% recommend this company and the course. Its rare to find that you get a great first hand experience these days. Top class and well done!

Very experienced trainer able to deliver years of experience in an easy to learn way. Done their best to deliver 1 on 1 training. Enough theory to get started then loads of hands on training.
