“When I saw the Introductory Hybrid Course I decided to enroll and see what information I would gain. I found this course simple and I will send my employees too this in the future. I walked away with simply but assuring knowledge off being able to work safely on these cars with confidence or general servicing on Hybrids and electric cars.”

“The Advanced Hybrid Course was just what I needed to be completely confident in repairing these cars. Paul Tugwell (the trainer) answered all my questions & explained all the cars systems and procedures I required to be able to repair these cars and service them.

The biggest tool that I have taken from these training courses is knowing that Paul and the MTAQ team are only a phone call away and very willing to help; which gives us a great peace off mind.
