"Hi guys, just wanted to say how good I thought your course was today. Its a plesent change to attend a training course that really fills the day with learning new skills without having to listen to the instructor tell tails about their holidays or love life to pass the time until the end of the day. As an estate warden for a housing association the skills I have learned today will not only save my employers (and residents) money on employing outside contractors, but also improve public services by reducing the time it takes us to deal with the problem of graffiti in areas of social housing"

Jeff, Drum Housing Association, South East England
