"Hello, Please find attached the completed projects for assesment. I found the video tutorials and exercises very informative."
Joseph Nicholls, Park Lane


"Good course for CAD. Takes you through all the basics in very simple terms. logical steps with good practical examples. Not enough software comes with this sort of training. This is very appropriate because CAD is very different from other desktop applications."
Tony, The Outside Bit


"I LOVE the training, it is really good, useful, helpful, the excersises are fantastic, the tempo is right, it assumes no knowlege (as it should). without being at all condescending. I just need longer days or bad weather.
Better, faster, funner described it well. I wish I could apply it to ather aspects of training in other disciplines."
Anne Waterhouse, Designer


"I haven't finished level one yet due to time restraints but thank you for following up. I intend to complete the course and think the online course is excellent."
Phillip Russell, Amenity Consultants.


"Thank you for a very enjoyable course. I feel quite proud of myself! I would like to go on to do the next level but I'm a bit flat out for the next two weeks, I'll get back to you after that. Meanwhile I'd like to watch all the videos again as a revision. Thanks again."
Jennifer Gibney
