Want to review this course?

The course was well put together.
With my partner, we are considering buying our first house, and the course covered loads of really relevant information and skills we will need in our new home. From how to wire a light to drilling brickwork and installing water pipes.
Scott is a great teacher and gave us loads of time and support to master the different skills during the day

A great day with loads of skills and building tips
