Pitman Training Aberdeen is part of the UK’s longest run and well respected Pitman Training Group. Located in the heart of the beautiful Granite City, we are here to help you unlock your potential!

Since mid 2014, the region has undoubtedly suffered due to the downturn in the oil industry. Now more than ever, it is imperative that you upskill with certified courses to give you a valuable added advantage in a very competitive job market.
