“The course built on the basics I had, gave a more technical insight, brings information to the front of your mind. Overall it gave an awareness of the whole subject. I have a small young team, they all take individual responsibility on their shoulders. Need to ensure they have the correct training then they will go the extra mile and make a difference to the business”
