TESTIMONIALS

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

” Just finished my cert 3 instro, was a great course that is very well set out. Kev has done an awesome job with the videos which allow you to complete it at your own pace. I wasn’t working during the time I did the course, took my time with each section and completed it in a 3 week period. The equipment, testing equipment, instruments and valves ect. are all common equipment you will find on oil and gas and mining sites. If you want to get into instrumentation, do it through Ausinet.”
