    A Great Platform

    The Diploma in Valve Operation and System Design gave me hands-on training on how to operate valves. As a maintenance technician I found this course very useful to my daily job. In fact, I learned more through this course than on the job itself. With my new-found skills, I feel confident to return to my job and operate valves.
