The course was brilliant, as was the trainer who was extremely knowledgeable with extensive real world experience. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Very enjoyable course which will enable me to produce a much better product for the customer. Well presented by John.
(4.80 out of 5) Justine V [ 15 April, 2015 ]
The course was a thorough overview to the software and the trainer is to be commended for his ability to adapt the course to the mixed abilities of the group.
(4.00 out of 5) Sharon W [ 15 April, 2015 ]
More of an introductory focus to Captivate would have been more appropriate for us, but John was only working with the brief he was given - e.g. to run an advanced Captivate training, and he worked really hard at guiding us through some of the more basic elements so it was challenging but really informative,
