Due to my work it was recommended that I took this course, and if I'm honest I thought it would be quite bland...How wrong was I, this course was so informative and gave me great information and kept me wanting to learn more. Impressed with the knowledge checks throughout and also I now have the 'what3words' app on my phone something that I didn't know existed and potentially could be a life saver. Well presented in a professional way, easy to use, most highly recommended, thank you Go Train and Develop for this excellent training session .
