Really good course. Wish I would have taken it sooner and saved myself learning things on my own, but was nice to confirm and tidy up my knowledge.

I was first sceptical of this course, with regards to the knowledge I would gain in such a short time, but having taken this course, I could not have been happier. The tutor was fantastic, very knowledgable and helpful. I would not only recommend XChange training but would consider doing further courses myself.
