Student story

Toby Shannon, British Science Association:

To be completely honest the course far exceeded my expectations. I felt it was incredibly useful. On top of that, I think the facilities are brilliant, good locations and friendly relaxed people. I thought it was particularly good that there were things, such as meal vouchers, tea, coffee etc which whilst only small made me feel as though you guys went the extra mile. I would come back for further courses and I would recommend it to other people. Attended AutoCAD 101 Rookie
