Course rating

"The course overall was good. The questions on the evening paper and exam were a little ambiguous and could have been clearer. Also closed book exams are a thing of the past, as an AP my reference documents for all subjects are what are important to me and where to find the information within these just as important, what I can remember of the top of my head is usually backed up with relevant references to documentation. On another note, lunches and rest area was good, both trainers we had were very knowledgeable and answered any questions to a high standard and the amount of switchgear you had available was impressive to meet the needs of many scenarios for my course and also plenty of others."
