 DELEGATE FEEDBACK
"Everything was laid out in a clean environment, so it was easy to identify what tools etc. were needed."

"The glanding exercise was good for awareness and also good to break up the classroom based learning. The course duration is good as there is so much to take in, the breaks and reasonable finish times help a lot."

"Really enjoyed. Well recommend"

"Practical rigs were good exercises, which were set up and executed well."
