Sample customer feedback

"Very useful and well explained, enjoyable course."

Stuart Barnard (Mercedes UK)

"Course was delivered to a very high standard and exceeded my expectations. It would encourage me to look into more courses and I would recommend."

Emma Deaker (Home Retail Group PLC)

"I really enjoyed the course, we had a great trainer. I was very engaged by his teaching, which is something I’ve struggled with on other courses. The trainer showed great patience and technical knowledge. Every time I hit an error, he could quickly point me in the right direction. The exercises were at the right level of challenge, and were not just another step-by-step guide. This made the course far more engaging for me. The facilities, room and laptops/environments were great. As a final plus, it was easy to book, with the course instructions being clear and simple. Everything was straight forward to do! "

Connor Kirkpatrick (IBM (UK) Limited)

"Good structure over the two days. The trainer changed thing up based on the groups preference."

Thomas Vaughan (Frontline Ltd)
