Jamie Pole
Very very pleased.  I was in a situation where I was out of work and with lots going on in my life because of Covid19.  My tutor was Deby and I can't thank her enough.  When I needed time away for personal reasons she and Tempus were there for me.  They really made me want to get the work I'm the proud owner of a CSCS card which will allow me to get back into work...Tempus, Deby I can't thank you enough!

Dee Parker
Great company with great teachers and very respectful phone staff.  Completed the free CSCS course and also gained an extra 2 qualifications.  They pay for your test and the CSCS card so you can't really go wrong.  Very respectable company - would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get into construction.

Debby is absolutely amazing! Debby was fantastic as our tutor and without her, I don’t think a single person would have passed especially me.  And thank you ever so much Sarah for being such a massive help. I look forward to getting into work soon with full credit going to everyone at the Brighton Tempus Training Branch. Would recommend to anyone and everyone as they really make the effort with you as long as you care to be there, and want to be there!

For the fact that this is a free course I urge people to get up off their backsides and make a change with their lives as well as bettering yourself.  I did the 5 day course over in Epsom, guided by an amazing tutor. I would do it again with no regrets. Thanks again Tempus

I completed the CSCS training in Bournemouth. The tutor was really friendly, tolerant and had an infectious motivational personality that was felt by the whole group. Tempus Training would now naturally be my first choice when I need to renew.

One of the most professional courses I have been on in a long time, the trainer (Debbi) was fantastic; she brought a class of very diverse ages and backgrounds together and created a safe space for us all to learn and explore the content. Well impressed.

I have recently passed all of the exams for the CSCS qualification and I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at freecscscourse and Tempus Training.  Especially I would like to thank Tracy, my course tutor, for all of your help and support.  I am now booked in to complete the CSCS test at my local test centre and am very much looking forward to getting back into work.
