  • Gary was calm and reassuring explaining subject matter that is complicated and so crucially important. There is so much to learn and understand but Gary assures you the information is all there it is just learning where to look for it or learning who to ask for help (July 2014)

  • The handouts were excellent and very clearly laid out. There were several activities to do and usually on other courses this involves a large sheet of paper and a marker pen and being asked to come up with words - something you can quickly get bored with. These activites on this course were interesting and you could definitely see a point to them. Also he spent the right amount of time on each slide of the power point and did not drag each one out. I can honestly say I was not bored at any time and the time passed quickly.
