I really enjoyed the course, and I will be taking away a lot more than I had expected before starting the course. Rob made the learning super simple and super enjoyable. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in learning Captivate
Great atmosphere in the training centre and a great trainer!
Really clear instruction, fun and useful. Just the right pace, not too slow or too fast. Lovely environment as well. Thank you.
