- “I have undertaken three courses with TKA in recent months and cannot fault the organisation and administration they display at every stage. Of course the backroom work is just one part when it comes to the training the three tutors were the most knowledgeable people I have ever met and their input enabled me to successfully pass all three courses which will surely enhance my prospects in my future career. I would not hesitate to use TKA in the future.”By Jacob Watt (Rating: 5 out 5, 11/03/2012) from London
