They are highly knowledgeable and always willing to help

I would like to say a big thank you to Steve, Keith and Simon for all of the training and help they have provided to me and my staff. I would highly recommend using them if you are coming into the industry, or an existing engineer. They are highly knowledgeable and always willing to help!!

Keith is brilliant

First, I’d like to thank SGAS and Keith especially who assessed me during my ACS reassessment last week. The facilities are getting better every time I revisit (even though on my first visit over 5 years ago they were a class above anywhere else) and ‘Keith is brilliant’. He’s probably forgot more than I know and helps make you feel at ease.
