The service worked very well for me. I was provided with all of the information and explanation of how the system works. It's nice to work at your own pace and study for the test. This is an excellent service!

I was informed by quite a few people in the trade the wof cert was not easy, aka FU##EN hard to pass. Training and learning the virm was difficult, my confidence was shattered. After using Andrei's training package, online training courses and personal assistance over the phone after hours I passed first time round both theory and practical.
This was money well spent, I would recommend Andrei and his training packages to anyone preparing themselves for their wof cert.
Thank you Andrei, I really appreciate your time and help, I wish you, your family and business a great future.
