Praise for our courses

I Found Marc's style and approach in conveying all aspects of the material covered to be very good indeed. The material was explained exceptionally well taking into account the range and complexity of it all.
I have thoroughly enjoyed the course and have found it beneficial even though I had a lot of experience with umbraco beforehand.
There was a good mixture of teaching, product history and humour. He had enough product knowledge to answer pretty much every question the group could throw at him and helped work out answers which stumped us all.
