What our students say...

Patrick McKenna

" This apprenticeship is a 10 week full time course from Monday to Friday 9 - 5. It's half theory, half practical.You have to be able to plan,draw to scale and then transfer into buildings also. You need this qualification to be able to work abroad. I like ITB, this is my second time here and I'm glad I came back. The instructors are very good here...very helpful."
