"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 ☺️"
