“ I was tired of my double glazing job and when I found out about the shortage of plumbers in the UK I decided it was time for a change. ”
“ I had no previous plumbing experience but thought I would give it a go. ”

“ I was fed up with my job as a Bakery Manager, getting up before the larks. I wanted to find a better way to bring in the dough and be my own boss, so I decided to retrain as a plumber. ”

“ In my opinion, The Train2Game course has been fantastic so far, ABSOLUTELY love the Unity book, it's got everything in it! ”
“ Train2Game have been a godsend. Courses of this type are very hard to find, As I work full time to support my family, I cannot afford to take three years out to get a bachelor's degree from a normal university and no other university in this country has a program where you can study 3D animation totally from home, in your own time and get a portfolio as well as a recognised qualification out of it. ”
“ I am pleased with the course, mainly that for a QA tester to train at college they would need to study IT and software based courses and then move over to the gaming industry, whereas T2G specialize the course to the right area. ”
“ I like that I can study for this qualification around my work and lifestyle. ”
“ Train2game gives you a wide knowledge of the gaming world ”
“ I think Train2game is a brilliant course! The teaching material is fantastic; guiding pupils through the games industry and of course their chosen focus area in the industry. T2G has enhanced my writing, pushed me to explore and understand, also showed me that almost any idea can be a success if it is executed correctly. ”
“ Train2Game helped me take my first steps into the game industry. ”
“ It's safe to say that undertaking the Games Designer course with Train2Game has been a fantastic turn of events for me. All in all Train2Game has and will continue to be a fantastic journey. ”
The courses in question included various "trade" courses, such as electrical and plumbing courses, and also animation and "games" courses, enabling people to become proficient in designing and animating computer and iPhone type games.
Highly professionally produced manuals that described the particular subject matter on a step-by-step basis in a manner that should be clear enough for the customer to learn everything relevant to the topic in question, simply by reading the manuals.
Again in a rather friendly manner, on signing up new customers, the customers were invited to ring up and introduce themselves to their tutors.
One of the obvious advantages of a distance-learning course, in contrast to a more traditional course at a university or technical college, was that provided a customer had the aptitude to spend 10 to 15 hours a week reading the manuals, the customer would still be able to pursue his ordinary job and thus earn money
...the courses were still very much cheaper than other university or available fulltime courses in relation to the same subjects.
...only by training that he could improve his prospects.
Its courses were generally designed to prepare customers to take third party examinations, provided for instance by the City & Guilds.
By amplifying the answers, and referring to passages in the manuals, the computer-based system was simply easier to implement, in that it saved tutors having to mark papers, and it gave more information, thereby enhancing the utilisation of the manuals.
It was perfectly easy to appreciate that the manuals could be used, as an end in themselves, without any resort by customers to any of the add-on services, and without any resort in particular to the tutor support.
The only apt description of the entire supply was therefore education.
The overriding object was "to receive an education and obtain a qualification".
...that customers should simply go back to the manuals to the page or paragraph indicated, and re-read the manuals.
The customer's desired end result was to educate himself entirely by studying the self-contained manuals.
