I would like to thank the team at Hawk for their professionalism in the way their carried out their jobs. It was a pleasure to train with Hawk after a previous seriously bad experience I had with another company. George was an absolute delight in his approach to the training which help me overcome my concerns. He basically had to rebuild my confidence as a plant operator fortunately for me I passed, however with George I would have still been fine if the outcome had have been different. I can see though the team that Hawk have why the company would be successful.
