Comments from the last workshop on 23rd-25th March 2011

Very useful course for all levels in training. I have done this course before in 2006 but came back to do it again this year as it is the best course available with lots of hands on sessions and useful tips. In fact, I am very disappointed that these courses will not be available in the future.

I find this workshop extremely useful and practical. It is one of the best workshops that I've attended so far. It is a pity that this is the last workshop.

Would recommend this course to my colleagues as good theoretical tips and plenty of "on hands" experience.
