What our students say...

All in all a superb learning experience

An excellent well paced course over two days with an instructor who delivers copious amounts of knowledge and practical experience to reinforce the learning experience. The whole course is well planned and with the low student to instructor ratio (5-1) every student receives personal attention and guidance.

Sheerline, Beginners Routing Course (2 day)

I enjoyed the mix of instruction and practice, which was just right

I also appreciated how Jason gave me individual attention; helping me solve problems with my router and advising me on how to tackle routing tasks which were not covered in the course. The course was well thought out, was paced correctly and taught with humour. Jason was very knowledgeable and often gave tips which you would never get from a book and which solved a problem without having to buy more hardware.
