    The way of teaching is up to standard. The tutor was friendly and helpful. If the course would have been of 5 days, then it will let the student to have more practice. Even though I tried to my best to get sufficient knowledge but due to time restriction I found there are still some things that need to be get educated with. I enjoyed my course. Hope it will be of 5 days in future.

    The teaching standard is high, facilities are clean and tidy, staff are friendly and useful, I think it is necessary to upgrade of the state of the higher level requirement of the course, so as not to confuse the "learner" or the "teacher" I have found that although I know "how to" use a PC the course itself needs quite a deep understanding that I think reading the book alone, or even investigating on the net cannot aid. I therefore suggest and entry test of some kind can be designed.
