"Great tuition, as has always been the case here at trade skills4u."
"Excellent tutor who made every effort to explain things in full for anything we did not understand."
"I was worried coming on the course I would be out my depth as I had only dealt with the practical side of things up to now. Mark made the course enjoyable and (as sad as it is) exciting and consequently the information/knowledge sunk in, all over the experience of the week was very positive. Cheers!"
