    The training was very professional and done with passion. As someone who uses Windows devices often, this has opened my mind to obtaining a Mac and extending my knowledge within this area.

    The trainer really knew his stuff. Did a great job in showing us the basics of getting around a Mac. Very well organised; quick to respond to enquiries and gave real life examples of issues.
