Fantastic, to be taught by 'the best in the business', would recommend to any one wanting to do an F Gas course. Thanks ever so much for your time and effort, it's been a pleasure to do the course with you guys.

Just a thank you note for the Cat 1 F Gas course completed today. Every single member of your team are a real credit to you. I've been on courses at other facilities and to be honest found them really boring and hard work. What a fantastic teaching technique you have. I really enjoyed my course and will definitely recommend you to my colleagues and see you in the future for further courses. Thanks again.

Ellis Training Works level of excellence is truly the best I have experienced in 25 years of engineering, I was apprentice trained by British Instructors and coming to this facility was a reminder of the British standard of old.

Joseph Gordon Mills

Tutors are clearly very intelligent and their way of breaking down complex processes and theories, like thermodynamics, is fantastic, they make it simple and more importantly understandable. Thank you very much for your time and more importantly patience!

Very enjoyable overall, have got what I wanted out of the 5 day fgas course, to be able to connect and make diagnostic decisions on the heat packs (refrigeration packs) operation and capacity performance.

Daniel Ventham (Chapman's Refrigeration)

This 5 day F Gas course has given me knowledge of why and how refrigeration works. It has given me more confidence when working with refrigeration and air conditioning. Very enjoyable and informative course, thank you.

The 5 day F Gas course is probably the best course I have ever been on, and I have been on many.

Testimonial Image

Rob Whybrow (Andalucia Yacht Services)

From starting the 5 day F Gas course with very little knowledge of refrigeration the course has given me an excellent understanding of the principals and fault finding.

Testimonial Image

Christian O'Neill

To cram so much information into such a short course is remarkable, thank you.

Testimonial Image

Ian Chittick (Aran Services)

I visited your training centre last week to attend the F-Gas training course and I just wanted to thank everyone involved at Ellis Training for all their help to get me through the course. I have been to other training centers and the standard of training and technical knowledge in comparison to yourselves is very poor. Although the course was quite difficult the way it was set out and explained gave a complete novice like myself the ability to learn and understand the systems involved. I will certainly be recommending your training centre and I hope that I get an opportunity to visit you again for more training. Thank you once again.

Mark West (Franklynair)

The F Gas Cat 1 training offered by Ellis Training Centre is taught in such a professional way that they make it suitable for all levels of technician and engineer. The layout and good facilities sets a nice training environment and everything you need to know about the F Gas requirement and more is taught during the week. It’s a course we recommend.

Philip Kennett (Asadul)

The course is run in a very professional but friendly “laid back” manner. It helped me to relax and therefore remember more information. I would recommend Ellis Training Works to any engineers.

Testimonial Image

Lee Davidson (Lee Cooling Ltd)

Appreciate the 'old school' delivery and attitude, plus the obvious level of knowledge and experience of the staff.

Anthony Collins (Capitol Group)

Found the course daunting for three days but if you knuckle down and take in as much as possible you will pass and look back and see that it was worth it. Also you will be that bit cleverer and wiser.

Testimonial Image

Mick Brooker (Optimum Group Services PLC)

May I take this opportunity on behalf of Optimum to thank all at Ellis training for the quality of training that myself and our engineers have received this week on our 3 day F-gas course. The course was well presented, delivered and most importantly received. I have been in this trade for some time now and it goes to show how all of us can learn where quality lecturing is given. But I would expect nothing else from those lecturers involved.

Testimonial Image

Peter O'Donnell (Selex Galileo)

Due to my lack of experience in this industry I thought this course [F Gas Cat 1, 5 day] was superb. For a beginner everything was covered. The best lecturers I have ever had on a training course! Everything was explained superbly. Thanks so much for all your help!!!

Testimonial Image

Stewart Brown (Selex Galileo)

The 5 day course provided a good overview of the course material for the new F Gas regulations and City & Guilds 2079.

Testimonial Image

Chris Hill (C C H Refrigeration Ltd)

Hi there, thank you very much for the fantastic training that you provided for me recently on my F Gas course. I thought that all of your tutors were extremely helpfull. Especially I remember the pep talk from John just before we sat the exam, I believe that his advice on our approach to sitting an examination was ever so helpful and enabled me to maximise the marks I achieved.

Testimonial Image

Sam Burger (Selex Galileo)

Excellent course, very friendly and helpful lecturers. Learned a lot in a short space of time and the facilities are superb.

Del French (Selex Galileo)

A big thank you to all of the staff at Ellis Traning Works for taking me from being a complete novice on refrigeration to being a holder of the FGas Category 1 (C & G 2079) qualification in just 5 days. Excellent hands on and theoretical training from all trainers and all delivered by people who obviously know their subject inside out and impart it to others in a down to earth and friendly manner.

Testimonial Image

Mark Hines (LM Plumbing and Heating)

Firstly I would like to thank you, I recently attended the F Gas, Split air conditioning installation and commissioning and Service and maintenance courses and found the courses and tutors to be excellent. I would also like to know if it would be possible for me at this stage to start the City and Guilds Technical Certificate level 2 and then progress on to the level 3 at a later stage?

Testimonial Image

Dennis Gwynne (Andrews Sykes Group PLC)

Just a quick note of thanks and appreciation for the excellent City & Guilds 2079 F Gas Qualification course your company are running. To date 3 of the 10 engineers we have booked have successfully completed and gained the relevant qualification. Two of the candidates Matthew Stapley & Mark Key are very experienced refrigeration engineers.
Both of them thought the course was not only very well run, but very informative and interesting. Even after 20 years each in the industry they both said they had learned something new and quote. “Brilliant”, “Best course I have ever been on”, “Knows his stuff”.
Also having the option to book the 10 course dates and then send which ever engineer we wanted has made life a lot easier to work around holidays, major projects etc.

Testimonial Image

Lawrence Workman (Herts Cooling Ltd)

We have sent our engineers to Ellis Training Works since its inception and found the level of training to be far superior to that experienced at other training organisations. We have trainees finishing their courses and being able to immediately demonstrate a very high level of understanding.

Testimonial Image

Joe Collins (Associated Cooling Services Ltd)

Many thanks to you and all the Ellis Training team for making the F Gas City & Guilds 2079 course so enjoyable and informative. I attended the course ahead of our employees to try and ascertain which of our engineers should attend the three and five day course. I am sure it will come as no surprise to you that given the amount of information that needs to be taken on board in such a short period of time, I feel that the majority of engineers will need the five day course. My colleague has already been in touch to secure future spaces. Companies deciding not to take this training will be taking a major risk.

Testimonial Image

Steve Glasby

Many thanks to you and all your staff for helping me pass the F Gas course last week, it was good fun and also good personal achievement too.

Rick Baxter (Natural AC LTD)

With regards to the recent F Gas course that I attended recently. I was very impressed with the standard that Ellis Training provided.

Kevin Bright (Eton Associates)

I thought I must drop you a quick email thanking you for such a well run course. The enthusiasm expressed by all the lectures for the subject was great, and this made the course very enjoyable.

Testimonial Image

Dave Parsons (Dunham-Bush Limited)

The course was conducted in a friendly and relaxed environment. I found the theory side of the course to be refreshing with regards to the rules and regulations and on certain elements of theory not used in my every day role as an engineer. I would recommend the course to those that have not gained their F Gas certificate already.

Ken Johnston

A comprehensive 5 day F Gas course, well managed, where the pieces reel into place on day 4.

Chris Georgiou

Very much enjoyed the course and have learned lots.

Shaun Buckley

The tutors are fantastic! Great training received, I feel highly confident in my new abilities.

Harrison Lane

Made a possible boring course enjoyable and interesting.
