" I can honestly say that I have never gone into any business purely to make money. If that is the sole motive then I believe you are better off not doing it. A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts."

Our Training Centre
Our training centre is a dedicated facility that includes dedicated airconditioned / heated classroom with comfortable seating, new desks and has a bright and lively feel to it.
We picked everything we hated about classrooms and made sure we didnt make the same mistakes.
The front of the shop
If you're looking for our facility, you'll find us in between the lunchbar on the corner of Rockingham Road and Hope Valley Road in Naval Base.
We are directly next to Enzed, and you need to enter through the carpark that services the lunchbar.
