Enjoyed the course and Claire was very patient and gave great constructive feedback that really helped. Great value for money. Disappointed to be told at the end of the course that we would have to send pictures to pass the course. Not that I mind at all but would be better to know what to expect. Other than that excellent course. Will recommend. (Posted on 23/04/2018)
