Amazing course, i learnt so much that can help my improve how i work. My trainer was very knowledgeable.

Comprehensive and useful. This is the third course I've taken with Linda and I appreciate the way she has focussed on the most important aspects of CSS to make learning quite easy.
(4.90 out of 5) Sarah W [ 14 January, 2020 ]
I wasn't sure what to expect coming in to the course, but it definitely exceeded my expectations. I can't wait to get back to work and apply what I have learnt, and I will be registering to take the JavaScript course - hopefully again with Linda. She was so patient and welcomes mistakes, so I didn't feel silly if I had missed a bracket somewhere! She event went outside of the curriculum and sourced some information for me on creating a video background, which is a current request I have for a project I am working on. I am greatly appreciative and will be recommending this course to my colleagues. We had two take the course last month, and at least 2 more eager to attend already.

Thoroughly enjoyed the class and content. Found i would probably require more time to get the full advantage of the course. Pace was a little too fast at times.
