Fantastic highly recommended !! I recently completed Cert IV in Instrumentation with Tech Skills Australia and this was the best training i have experienced. Both the trainers were extremely knowledgeable and very helpful if you required things to be explained further. The class being small meant we could complete practicals one on one with the trainer and they could address any further questions we had.

I completed my cert 111 in instrumentation here. Small classes meant a lot more opportunity to ask questions and work through different scenario's as a group. The lecturers were great with loads of industry background often talking about different scenario's they had come across throughout their careers. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to improve their instrument skills and knowledge.

Excellent! - I have just completed both the Cert IV Hazardous Areas and Cert IV Instrumentation here at Tech Skills Australia. I was really impressed with the amount of industry knowledge and level of experience all the trainers have. They are also very capable teachers and the small classes mean they can offer lots of one on one training to make sure you understand each part of the course before moving on. The facility is top notch and they have plenty of great and up to date equipment here to practice and do the practicals with. I feel like the skills and knowledge I've gained here will give me a great foundation to build on out on the job. I will hopefully be coming back here before long to do my Cert III Instrumentation!
