PTS and you can't just do it, you need to be sponsored by a company.

Hi there you can do your PTS training with a company called green light training They are based in south Wales In Abercynon .there number is 01443 699028 I did mine there and they were really nice and had a really good set up. They act as your sponsor and run courses nearly every week . It's cost 350 this encludes your medical .

Hope this helps

So much for arbtalk being the friendly place to find out stuff.

I wouldn't blame Jack if he kept his questions to himself in future.

Is there some history between you and Jack (I see you are both from the same county) or is it just that he isn't part of the arbtalk in-crowd?
