  1. Alastair | Stock Office Manager

    Thoroughly enjoyable course with a lot of detail and explanation. The trainer was also very good at assisting with a few questions where I was trying to look at how I could use certain aspects of what learned into our business when I get back. Can’t thank him enough for this.
