What our graduates say about our training courses
My younger brother has recently finished a course with Arcs and Sparks. I can't recommend them highly enough. They not only ensure that the trainees receive top quality training, they aim to achieve that each student is confident entering the workforce. The level of help and encouragement have given from the staff in this establishment is admirable. Fair play to all at arcs and sparks I wish you all the best in the future.
I'm delighted to do the Tig pipe welding course at Arcs&sparks it was so handy to do this course 4 days a week and work part time at the weekend. Hopefully after i will be coded pipe welder in carbon steel and stainless steel pipe. Definitely will worth it. Because it's great to see a lot of jobs in this career in industry. Big thank you very much to Declan what an instructor

Completed my TIG course,got fully coded and I was very happy with the course,instructors, very good equipment and all the lads on the course I would advise the course to anyone with the slightest of interest because I never picked up a TIG torch before I done the course but with the right training I learned the right way. I would like to give a big thanks to instructors Mickie, Michael and especially Declan which was a massive help on the course . Thanks lads
First class training provider and great aftercare service! Always willing and able to provide great advice.
