Testimonials from previous attendees
Good day’s training, interesting and with food for thought on how to improve report writing skills.
Tutor was very knowledgeable, passionate and delivered the course, which could have had the tendency to be rather dry, in an enthusiastic and interesting way.
The overall content of the course was very much proactive.
Excellent, will help tremendously for future reports that I will need to do. Instils confidence.
