Best course I have attended Unlike others which are showroom based don’t touch this or you left mark there.This was actually hands on course Different makes and models were in workshop both live and dead boilers also lots of sensor switches pumps,G valves etc. Pete was excellent made sure everyone understood what were they doing and what outcome or readings they were looking from each test carried out.pete put faults on live Boilers when we were away for break to simulate real world scenarios which was really good.Excellent would really recommend it.

Passed my ACS with Viva, great trainers put me at ease in a relaxed training atmosphere. Roy & Pete are down to earth, helpful and know there stuff. Lindsay was helpful with the paperwork/ portfolio side of the course, which also helped as paperwork isn't my forte.The company they use for placement are also good, made a few new friends and enjoyed the experience with Basi. Would recommend and I will be going back.

Great centre for learning and development. 👍
Fantastic course just completed ASHP and water regs. Brilliant team and facilities.
Just recently completed a fault finding course with the ever knowledgeable Roy Fugler.I honestly cannot rate this training centre and Roy highly enough!I completed my ACS training with them over two years ago and they were my number one choice when I decided to expand my knowledge around the inner workings of a boiler and how to diagnose the issues that often arise.I will have to re-sit my ACS again in a few years and there’s only one place I’ll be going. It’s VIVA all the way!
Would highly recommend. Lovely staff and knowledgable tutors
