Course rating

"The instructor had very good experience in what he was talking about, not straight from the book. Experience in what they are instructing you about is a great thing in training people makes it interesting and you can relate to it. Well done, great week. I will certainly pass your company on to my friends and work colleagues at National Grid and Triio."
