Latest course reviews...

Just the job

This course was run by Neil via Zoom and it was a really good experience for the whole afternoon. My own personal goal for attending the course was to move away from automatic settings and I now feel confident that I can do this and have a bit of a bash! Things were explained very clearly all the way through and it's all made perfect sense. I would say that the course is ideal for people just getting started all those who want to take the step. It was an excellent experience.
