Week 2: The 5 day training course.
Week 3: (Optional) Volunteering as an ICT recycling operative. (For more information on our volunteering placements please visit our website).
"I would like to say that I feel this course has been really worthwhile. I have learnt about recycling computers, building them, diagnosing, and testing, and lots about the history of where it all started. Kevin Wilson is a great tutor and is very inspiring. I have really enjoyed the Green Train Course and it has filled me with the relevant knowledge and confidence. All of the people at REBOOT are great; they are friendly and make you feel welcome. I would definitely recommend the Green Train Course in the future and I would really be interested in any other courses that are running in the future."
