The course was very useful, hands on, interactive and practical. I am taking good tools back to work. John has been a great trainer. He knows his stuff, answered complex questions, dedicated time to each one of us. While respectful, he also showed great sense of humor which helped to have some fun in the class. Thanks, hope to see you in a next course!

Great. Attended for a "refresher" course. John provided tailored feedback for my needs and queries that I had raised with him, also endeavouring to look up answers where he was unsure.
