This course was very good, and Mandy is an excellent trainer. The practice exercise at the end was good to consolidate what we learned during the day.

Jenny has been absolutely brillant!!!!! I have been to so many different training courses for computer training and have never been able to concentrate for an entire day or take the skills learnt and apply them after the class. This is not the case here. I have learnt so much and have been engaged the entire day. I have gotten so much out of this lesson. excellent excellent excellent.
