Paul did an excellent job in delivering what could be a dry subject in a well paced and interesting format. The practical element was challenging enough to get you thinking, with support on hand if needed. Well done.

The lecturer made all attendees feel comfortable, irrespective to their individual level of ability and competence. It was evident the lecturer also had a wealth of personal experience which was read across and related to the course content, and was able to answer questions at various levels.

The overall content of the taught course was very good I believe. Now that I'm back on site, I feel like I'm more capable of asking the right questions and understanding comments made by the electricians. Some content was covered very fast; however I don't believe anything could be done about this without extending the course which isn't viable. The trainer was very helpful and answered any questions we had very well. All the facilities provided were good. The exam was a good level of difficulty.

Teaching room needed air conditioning, which was provided by the middle of the week but the room was too hot for learning before that.
