Do you know - it was one of the best courses I've been on. The class size was about right, trainer fully engaged and clearly expert, plenty of time, relaxed, decent equipment and space, spot on environment for learning.
I think the course was extremely well balanced, Andy was a great instructor and explained things thoroughly and in a very understandable way.
Great course, Andy was extremely helpful and knowledgeable.
