The guys cannot stop extolling the virtues of the training and of your instructors. They've already started to bug me for the next training session.
It was far and away an extremely professional course that my crews gained extensive knowledge from.
Mark and Ken were excellent instructors, more patient than I would have been and were very knowledgeable.
Thanks so much for sending them here and for the great course.
