The training format and Tanni were very personable, and it made the sessions enjoyable.
The course was very beneficial for all sectors, it wasn’t just about software. There were some tips & programmes which we can take back to our work places. Tanni was great and really altered his teaching style to everyone. Signing up was really easy and it was definitely a beneficial course.
