Great teacher, would recommend his courses and will come back to him in future.

Paul was a very good teacher. Easy to understand and helped me when needed. I felt comfortable in his classroom and confident to ask questions. When friends ask, I will recommend.

Very knowledgable and passionate tutor

When arriving, I was nervous and unsure of my abilities. The trainer made me feel at ease as soon as I came in. If I needed to ask questions I did, and they were answered clearly and in a way I understood. The practical work was challenging but my trainer guided me through and made it as interesting as possible. Will definitely be recommending this company.
