"The course, content and instructor were of the very best quality and I have absolutely no complaints. I could not recommend this course higher!"
"After the course I was considerably less likely to want to throw my computer out of the window and actually looking forward to getting on with the project the next day!"
"Very friendly and informative trainer. A lot more interesting and better than I expected! I left with a lot more knowledge, and very much enjoyed the course."
"I thought the course was thorough and well paced, and learning in a group of 6 was ideal as the software can feel very complex to a beginner and it allowed to time to practice each step as well as listening to how others would need to use the software. I would recommend the course for content and I think it was good value for money as well as being a fast (2 day) intro to the software."
"The trainer was very friendly and made the training relaxed and easy to understand - Thanks again!"
"Very well organised, I will definitely consider going on to another course."
