Feedback on the TWC course that I attended on 7/8. The tutor Francis Kwateng was brillant. The course was well structured and well delivered for such an intense subject, and I passed.
Dave Sutherland
I just wanted to say that I thought the way John ran the course was very informative and engaging. I can recall my initial TWC training and have so say it was nowhere near as impressive as your course.

John was a brilliant trainer, very informative and used his own experiences to help pass on knowledge.
