 Comments from participants

"Excellent course. The course book is going to be a big help."

 "Fantastic course! It was well prepared and taught in the best possible way.  The instructor knew his stuff and did a great job. I intend to make the most of the follow-up service so I think this is going to take up a lot of his time, but it will be well appreciated!  Extremely satisfied!"

 "Excellent set up for preparing for the exam. My approach to project preparation has moved from thinking "like a fitter" with a focus on what is practical/profitable, to a higher more comprehensive level with more emphasis on electrical safety. Thumbs up!"

 "This course has given me the confidence boost I needed to believe I can do this! It gave me exactly what I needed, plus a bit more."
