“Able Skills offered all the courses I needed in one package and they had a fantastic reputation. Keith is a knowledgeable tutor who helps students take in vast amounts of information in a short period. As with level 2, Keith was fantastic.”

B Wilson

"I did consider other training centres before Able Skills but the reviews and location really convinced me to train here. My instructor, Steve delivered a ‘dry’ subject with great humour and great interaction which really helped us learn all the relevant knowledge."


J Ayton

"Before I came to Able Skills I had originally looked at Trade Skills 4U, but I chose Able Skills after reading reviews and coming in for a chat with the staff. Also, the location and professionalism of the centre was a big factor for me. I really enjoyed the course and Keith is a great tutor, very helpful, sincere and gets to the point. All other electrical tutors I spoke to were very helpful also and gave good advice and tips. The office staff are so helpful and friendly. Facilities, workshops were very good. Top marks to Able Skills for a very good learning experience."
