"I did the introduction and the advanced course back to back so The training was very intense, however there were plenty of short breaks throughout the day to break it up a little and it was worth it in the end. The facilities were good, all you can drink coffee and xbox’s in the lobby room. Michal, the instructor, was clearly an expert in the field and his manner in which he delivered his training was excellent. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone, looking to progress in their career. "
