"I wanted to say thank you for the course yesterday, it was really enjoyable and very useful learning. I loved the engine in the trailer; to get a real ‘hands on’ experience like that consolidates the learning and gives confidence. I enjoyed all the demos, charts and slides you used in the classroom too." - Helen, October 2018
