What our customers say

"I recently completed the certifying gasfitter online course. The course is in-depth, focusing on all the necessary parts of the exam ... and they are happy to help with any questions (I had heaps)."

— Bryn Jones

"Without the help of Trade Lab®, there is no way I would have achieved the pass marks I did in both my gas and plumbing certifying exams. If the thought of more study fills you with dread, then jump on board with Trade Lab® and you’ll surprise yourself."

— Jim Simpson

"I completed Trade Lab®’s six-week plumbing certifying course in four weeks, spent the fifth doing revision, and passed the exam with 95 per cent. I would also recommend this as a refresher course for anyone unsure on the code."

— Henry Miskelly
