Very good course. Gained the skills expected and more!! Very approachable and helpful lecturer.

Matthew - Utilities

Thoroughly enjoyed !!!

Dann - External Innovation Consultant : Accessi - Communications

I liked Greg's freestyle relaxed methods of teaching which encourages 'doing' rather than just reading.

Great overview of the HTML and CSS technologies! Greg provided interesting background knowledge and clearly knows this subject inside out. Greg gave good insight into tools/publications that can be used for further learning.

Mark - System Support Officer - Government

Having very limited knowledge of HTML and CSS, I have found the course extremely insightful and now appreciate how Webpages are compiled. I feel that I can very much draw upon the information learnt during the course to be utilised for work and also personal use.The trainer had a great sense of humour and explained things well and was very patient.

Simone - Mobile Campaign Delivery Manager

Great training, very happy with everything!

Having previously undertaken a similar course in the past I expected this course to not be especially beneficial, however this was not the case at all. I have garnered some very useful new skills and knowledge. The trainer's subject knowledge and delivery are a credit to himself and Stayahead. I was constantly engaged and rarely found myself requiring a repeat of the coursework but when needed he was more than helpful in explaining where I was struggling.
