I had taken the TAQA course with PBC. Karl Rowley was my coach and I only have positive praise for both Karl and the course. Karl's delivery of the modules were exceptional he was friendly, easy to talk to and was oozing with enthusiasm. This level of professionalism had made the experience really enjoyable. To supplement the level of enthusiasm, all the sessions were very interactive and Karl ensured the information he was presenting had been understood by the attendee's. The course itself was very useful and I feel my skills and knowledge have certainly been enhanced. I would recommend both Karl and the TAQA course by PBC.

I’ve recently completed a TAQA qualification through PBC Associates led by Karl Rowley. The course was split into three separate face to face days, one of which I wasn’t able to attend in person and so Karl arranged for the course to be delivered via Zoom, something I really appreciated. Karl was friendly and professional throughout the course and was always on hand for any support where needed. This is the second qualification I’ve completed through PBC Associates and I would encourage anyone wishing to develop themselves to contact them as I have no doubt the experience would be wholly positive.

Excellent overall experience. Training session was really good and engaging! Communication was clear and constant throughout. Quick turn around from work completion to qualification with consistent and amazing support throughout! Special mention to Karl who has been 10/10. Would highly recommend!

I have just completed an assessor course with PBC through my employer. I have done numerous courses in my railway career, but this was by far the most enjoyable I have ever attended. A masterclass in getting the best out of all the attendees. Karl was superb and professional, and his knowledge of the subject matter is exceptional. No matter what scenarios we came up with to challenge him, he always had a solution. I can't recommend this couse highly enough. 👍

I can't thank Karl enough for the time and support he gave me while I compete my Level 4 Award in the Internal Quality Assurance of Assessment Processes and Practice. Nothing was ever to much, from day 1. Learning was made easy by the structure and the delivery of the course, this was then backed up with the support give while working towards the qualification. Excellent from Karl and the team.

It was a wonderful learning experience with Karl from PBC Associates. The training programme was strategically designed to suit the needs of an Internal Quality Assessor for the Rail Industry (WMT Trains) and it felt like Karl's understanding of the Standards made one feel as if he has been working in the rail industry for a long time. Karl displayed a good understanding of not only what was required but also of the working practices of the industry which made it easier for everybody to understand what was expected of them to complete the course work for the qualification. Karl seems to have his finger on the pulse of learning trends and had a good instructional design of the course which was well structured and had a fit for purpose content. Thanks Karl for all the support you have provided to all who attended the course.

As part of my current role I needed to complete the Level 3 Award in Assessing. PBC provided the training and I had the pleasure to meet Karl Rowley for 2 days of training. Karl made everything clear, concise and provided no end of support during this qualification. Karl's knowledge of the subject was immense and this was matched by his passion in delivering it so that I was engaged with the subject. Karl was always available for advice and help and his feedback on the submitted work was constructive at all times. I passed the qualification with no worries. Thank you Karl for your amazing training style, incredible knowledge and for getting me through the qualification.
