  1. Eddie Jacks

    Well delivered and great content which was explained in detail allowing a good understanding of the subject matter – thanks


    In depth and interesting

  3. Malcolm Boon

    A well assembled course which was delivered well by the lecturer, the biggest reason for five stars being Morsafe demonstrated their flexibility to allow me to attend a funeral on the last day of the course whilst still allowing me to complete the course, for which I am extremely grateful to all involved.

    • Morsafe

      Malcolm. Thank you for your feedback. When required, Morsafe tries to remain flexible in a pragmatic way to ensure fairness and hopefully a positive outcome.

  4. Rob Coombe

    Well delivered and prompted group discussions on real life AP Petroleum scenarios

    • Morsafe

      Thanks Rob. We like to try and involve the delegates as it generally promotes good discussion and we all learn from other peoples sites and experiences.
