"The course was extremely enjoyable!"
Anonymous, ALD Automotive. (10/8/2021 (Tuesday) to 13/8/2021 (Friday))

"The instructor has been absolutely fantastic and I have got a lot out of this course. It has helped reinforce my knowledge, covered everything from basics to advanced topics. Having an in-person tutor has been immensely helpful as the students have been able to ask questions during discussions and have had explanations in a straightforward way that empathises with beginners from a non-technical background."
Suzanne Clark, ALD. (10/8/2021 (Tuesday) to 13/8/2021 (Friday))
