    I recently attended this course and found the trainer (Ash) to be engaging, confident and very knowledgeable in all aspects of the subject. The addition of electronic tablets for the reference material was really good being easy to use and not taking up loads of space on the table! the pace of learning was just right and the depth of syllabus perfect for applying to my work.
    The venue used was smart and easy to find/use with good facilities.

    As always an excellent course from Morsafe, the inclusion of tablets in the programme makes looking up and revision a lot easier. Also saves a few trees every course.

      Thanks for the feedback Gary and the tablets are new to management courses and seem to be going down well. Gerry Morpeth, Course Director

    I attended the course last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. Ash delivered the course well, stopping for discussion and setting a steady learning pace. If I could comment on one thing, that would be the course assessment. The assessment could of been done at home over a period of time and emailed. Good course and tutor.

    • Morsafe

      Thanks for the positive feedback following your recent course. The problem with “work being done at home” is that often it isn’t and we therefore cannot certify the delegate until all has been completed. This would also be difficult to monitor.
