The trainer was very knowledgeable, informative and relatable. He was able to keep the class attentive and focused on learning. Very approachable for help and was overly willing to answer questions of all sizes and assist when needed. The course was an absolute pleasure with this trainer.

Well done. Lots of engagement with the class made me feel like I wanted to be here for this.
