Client Testimonial...

"After plenty research I decided to attend Arb For for my resettlement as they were clearly a professional and experienced training provider. On first contact with Lesley, she was able to provide me all necessary information and even invited me to meet with the instructor, Gareth, before committing myself to the course. Gareth has a wealth of knowledge and experience in this field, and discussed career options, to make sure their course was best suited to me. He has the understanding of the transition process from military to civilian employment and this, I found, was a huge benefit.

On starting the course, I felt at ease straight away, with Gareth always happy to answer questions and confirm my understanding before moving on. At the end of the course, Gareth is still supporting me with job searching, and I know I shall definitely be returning to Arb For for more courses. Many thanks."
