"The training, the trainer and the facilities were excellent"     Ruth Eckersley     Aug 11 2014

"Wayne was a good tutor"     Sherese Edwards     Jun 19 2014    

"I thoroughly enjoyed the course"     Dawn Smallman     Jun 19 2014    

"Excellent course and although attended similar before still felt like I learnt a lot. Especially liked being able to tailor course to suit our requirements and fact that trainer came to us. Created a much better environment for learning. Trainer excellent, answered all our questions and more. Felt more confident in answering questions etc as in familiar background with colleague rather than classroom with lot of strangers, so for me got a lot more out of course than would do normally."     Gill Pearce     Jun 2 2014    

"Really liked the format and content. Delivery of the course from Colin was excellent and engaging. Facilities and location good."     Julie Lord     May 19 2014

"The trainer, Jackie, was absolutely brilliant and handled the mixture of personalities admirably. I found the course to be absolutely brilliant and was very impressed with the knowledge I gained from it - most of which was about me!"     Tracy Knight     Feb 24 2014
