"Cannot thank ETA enough, made it so easy and down to earth to learn, also made it enjoyable, cannot thank Scott and Jan enough for all their help when going through course and especially when it came to ACS, made me feel at ease. After helping me get a job, before I had my papers through…..they are always on the end of a phone or WhatsApp if I need any help or info when I started. Always available for any help etc and always answer or call back asap. As I said. Can’t thank ETA, Scott, Jan, and Tommy and his team enough. Thank yous ☺️"

Richard Ross - December 2023

I have just completed the full-time course here at ETA passing my ACS last week.

I cannot thank the team at ETA enough for everything they have done for me over the past six months. They are absolutely the best option for anyone looking to take on the managed learning program and enter into a gas career. Their extensive knowledge and experience is second to none and was apparent throughout my time here.

They have gone above and beyond what I had been expecting, not only by securing my 7 week placement but also in my job search, and have played a vital role in me securing multiple interviews in the coming days.

Sad that my time at ETA has ended for now, but I don't doubt I will be back!
