What Our Customers Say

Martec has been established for over 35 years, along the way we have earnt an excellent reputation with both our employers and students. Here’s what some of them had to say:


“Our Apprentice is a very keen and hard working young man who has come on in leaps and bounds since we set him on over 12 months ago. He has the right attitude to succeed as a Technician and is becoming a valuable team member. My company has always been a big believer that an Apprenticeship is, without a doubt, the best route to gain the right skills to become a qualified technician. Two of our current employees started off as Martec Apprentices and have now been with us for over 15 years, so we are confident that on the job training alongside day release for the underpinning knowledge at Martec Training really does work!”


“The support I have received from Martec training in finding me the job and also from my assessor has been excellent. I would recommend this route to anyone wanting a job as a mechanic as it allows you to really get stuck in, gain hands on experience and earn a wage at the same time!”


“I attended Martec Training for my 1st year completing Level 1 Motor Vehicle. I had very little experience when I joined Martec but knew I wanted a career in the Motor Vehicle Industry. I loved attending Martec and gaining the knowledge needed to get a foot through the door. Through work experience I was then able to secure an Apprenticeship in my second year”


“We started working with Martec 3 years ago. Prior to this we had very little knowledge of Apprenticeships. Martec have been great in supporting us every step of the way. They sent us a number of students for interviews which we then selected one for a trial period. Martec are always on hand to support us and guide us in the right direction. I highly recommend Martec to any business looking at taking on an Apprentice”.


“When I started Martec I was very nervous, however I really liked the small groups and Martec tutors are very friendly and are always there to talk to. I’m doing a Hospitality and Catering course and love my time at Martec”.
