    Really good course and very well delivered but could do with a more realistic practical experience.

    • ekszx

      Hi Paul and thanks for your positive feedback. The practical element of the management course is just to give designate AP(CS) a feel for the equipment and checks rather than becoming a fully trained entrant, which our other courses are designed to achieve.
