What Our Customers Say

I had such an amazing experience at Traffic Management Academy. Both the Traffic Controller and the STMS courses were insightful, enjoyable and professionally run. All the trainers came with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Not to mention humour. A special thanks to Marius the director who went beyond the call of duty to help me with my personal project. I would highly recommend Traffic Management Academy if you are considering a course, organising a TMP or just wanting some advice or direction with any aspect of Traffic Management. Darren
Traffic Management Academy is living proof that ignorance is bliss. Without the support of this wonderful company, my employees would be nowhere.

I recently did a TC-I course as part of the contractual requirements of a job we're currently undertaking. Marius is a great presenter, he turned what could potentially be a mind-numbing experience into a fun day, no one at the office can believe I actually enjoyed doing the course. Good venue, course content very relevant, would recommend TMA to anyone. Two thumbs up from me. Helin
