I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Kevin explained everything very well, listened to our needs and tailored the instructions to our questions. He was an excellent instructor and I would follow any other course given by him.

The course was pitched at just the right pace and Kevin correctly judged which sections needed more or less attention than others based on my previous experience and requirements. A very enjoyable course which I would happily recommend.
