By providing you with the most reliable, updated and affordable solution, your licencing process becomes more straightforward, easier to understand and less work. 

Background: Gavin has worked tirelessly with aspiring engineers, geoscientists, technicians and technologists to create courses, services and free resources to help them with their professional accreditation.   The process of obtaining a designation can be time-consuming and is constantly changing.  Gavin keeps a close eye on the updates to the exams so that the products and services are current, straightforward and highly useful to you the aspiring professional.
