“I thought the delivery of the course was very good – even the most simple questions were welcomed and the tutor was obviously very experienced. I liked the small number of course attendees which helped ensure everyone got individual attention – I thought the course was good value”

“The course was more than worth the money and time. Richard was extremely approachable and was happy to answer any questions that any of us had. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. I was very sad to leave. I’d do it all again”

“A great course, with a perfect participant to lecturer ratio and covering exactly what was stated. The duration was perfect and pace good, with an excellent balance of theory and practical work.”
