  • Many thanks once again for an extremely well run course.I and the rest of the group were hugely impressed with the trainer’s ability to couple complete professionalism with the creation of a fun learning atmosphere.The course was run at a perfect pace. It allowed everyone to reach a similar level quite quickly, and then drove us to soak-up as much information as possible for the duration.As an ex trainer myself, I found the level of prior preparation for the course exemplary. All of the data/tables created prior to the course for our use showed the level of thought and commitment that has gone into wireframing the course, and importantly, allowed us to get the most benefit possible from the time available.I will absolutely be recommending this course to all of my customers and colleagues.I’m excited for the rest of my guys who will be attending next week!Shane Cotter
