ABOUT US

Our School

David Fogelman - West Coast Training Student
“They start from the basics and teach you everything you need to know. Access to equipment is really good. You’re not sharing equipment with other students. Hands-on equipment time in the seat is really important and WCT gives you plenty of that. The instructors are very qualified and they know how to help you learn.”
