Amazing Alumni

Craig Frain

Craig , from Launceston, gained his Level 1 Plant Operations qualification, his Construction Skills Competence Scheme (CSCS) and his Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CPCS). 

“The course at Duchy College was really hands on and prepared me for working in the industry. Without my CSCS and CPCS I wouldn’t have been able to get my first job, I would recommend the course to anyone who wants a career in this industry,” 

“I have worked for different companies allowing me to build up experience in different areas of the business which has given me the confidence to step out on my own and start my own plant hire business.”
