    Just completed my NRSWA supervisor course at MPTT with Mark as the tutor. I found Mark very helpful and knowledgeable (even for a Leeds fan) about everything relating to the training course and he provided excellent guidance. Big shout out also to his glamorous assistant Gina who showed impeccable time keeping. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable week made me feel at ease where as some courses can feel over intense. Thanks guys.

    Just passed my CPC Dozer A34 today, so very happy I would highly recommend MPTT for the training. They are a great team, very professional, good communication and a friendly bunch, with a wealth of knowledge of the Construction and associated business, made me feel at home from the start.
