Customer feedback

Barry Edmonds said: "The online training ( prior to the course ) was invaluable, well presented, clear, logical and something to complete at 'leisure'. The 3 day(+) course was excellent with both content and presentation, made all the better for interacting with others under Bobs watchful, and humorous eye. Outstanding in every respect. Thank you.( and thank goodness I don't have to sit the exam again)."
