Find Out How We Help You To Learn New Skills Quickly

  1. You'll be MTA certified in just 2 days. With us, you’ll be MTA trained in record time
  2. Our MTA course is all-inclusive. A one-off fee covers all course materials, exams, accommodation and meals. No hidden extras
  3. Pass MTA first time or train again for free. This is our guarantee. We’re confident you’ll pass your course first time. But if not, come back within a year and only pay for accommodation, exams and incidental costs

As well as winning many more awards, we’ve trained and certified 61,467 professionals, and we’re partners with all of the big names in the business
  7. You'll do more than study MTA courseware. We use practical exercises to make sure you can apply your new knowledge to the work environment. Our instructors use demonstrations and real-world experience to keep the day interesting and engaging
