Kerry Watson - Sales Manager

"Thoroughly enjoyed the training day, pace was just right, with the opportunity to ask questions when required.  Course covered exactly what I needed to know, and having access to the guides will also help.

Nice friendly environment for the training and Sharon ensured we were all well looked after in regard to details on pre briefing, travel and also the day. "
