Years Served: 13 Years
In 2015 I decided to terminate my Service in the Army after 13 years. I was very unsure as to what I wanted to do, so I visited the resettlement centre and after hearing very positive things about Akona I decided to look further into the training they provided.
I had often thought of working within the rail sector, but had no idea what to do or how to get started. Once I had researched my options, I decided that the best course provider for me would be Akona, as the training they provide is governed by recognised qualifications.
From start to finish the help I received from the staff at Akona was outstanding. The training provided by Barry is excellent: his knowledge of the job and the experience that he passes on to you is second to none. Akona has provided me with the right tools and skill-set to start my career within the rail sector. I was torn between what to use my ELCAS money on, but I’m glad I made the right choice with AKONA.
