Feedback from previous attendees of Virtual Classroom training

"Very informative course with excellent manuals etc. Excellent and although accessed remotely it was very easy to interact with the instructor/other attendees."  Alan Thomson, Technical Director, Speck and Burke (December 2021).

"The extensive coverage of all aspects of the software."  Bespoke Virtual Classroom training, December 2021.

"Really informative course on GC Open lab software. Friendly polite and knowledgeable seminar put together online to teach how to use the software. I'm sure it will come in very handy and the lab exercises will be great to work through to gain familiarity further. Diane did a great job explaining parts as it can be difficult to teach software online when the end user is not infront of it yourself. The guidebook and video are good ideas so the training can be revisited and the course learnt more thoroughly."  December 2021.
