“Excellent customer service, extremely knowledgeable and really helpful in responding to training queries. We would definitely recommend CMT” Marie, Riteweld Engineering

“I was on the HSA(+1) course yesterday at Fulbourn (nr Cambridge) and wanted to send an email praising our instructor.

It wasn’t a course that I was heading to with much excitement to be honest, however….. out of all the courses I have been on over the last 18 years, Your’s was by far the most enjoyable.

Factual, fun, and well delivered.

I will pass my recommendations on and will look forward to coming back one day for another course.

Keep up the great work.” 

Adam, DSEI

“The training went very well, at a good steady pace throughout. I had excellent support which without I wouldn’t have got through the course.On various courses with different training providers, I never got this level of support throughout and even felt neglected at times.

The Fulbourn centre has excellent facilities which were great to learn and develop in.”

Dale, Bouygues
