The course was great, thank you Cameron

Darren is a great trainer, he is very knowledgeable and has lots of good examples to support the content (hopefully I can get to that sort of level in my career). I found the course a little more difficult than I had imagined but I’m learning a lot and it is nice to get my teeth into something other than occupational health and safety.
