Trainer was excellent. Unfortunately, due to where I was sitting it was very difficult to see the (rather small) training slides, together with the trainer sitting in the way. I feel it would be better for the trainer to be in the corner of the room to allow all delegates to see the screen. Or perhaps have more than one screen

Jim Donnelly is an excellent tutor, thank you very much for your guidance. The venue is looking a bit tired but is copping well under the circumstances. The course material was satisfactory and the method of training had a good rhyme and Jim understood our weaknesses.
