In the event of a travel delay engineers/delegates should contact the F-TEC training centre directly on 01793 686182, providing the course’s title and expected arrival time. 


All engineers attending courses must bring two current passport-sized photographs as it facilitates completion of the registration card. Please note that this requirement applies even if an engineer already has a card from a previous course.
