Comments from a 3-day lead welding course:

Excellent course, very helpful instructors.  The  Course is very well run, all staff are friendly and helpful.  My welding, after 3 days, is to a good standard, even though Ive never welded before the course.  Dale Ligget, Richard Soan Roofing Services

I found the course to be very helpful, having done roofing for a few years already, it was good to do the lead course as I have not done lead welding before.  The teachers were very helpful and made the course more enjoyable.  Lee Payne, Richard Soan Roofing Services

The course was organised, set up and presented very well!  The facilities are excellent.  My tutor was Pete, very patient and full of expert knowledge.  I had never attempted lead welding before but Pete demonstrated and explained everything step-by-step, and within two days I could weld!  I would recommend this training centre highly.  I would like to thank both Pete and Yusof for making this course fun to do but also full of great information and advice!  Paul Spence
