  1. Qasim Mahood | QA Engineer | Moneybox

    Great course – it was interesting with good learning materials. Trainer was great, engaging, fun and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend

  2. Luke Amis | Test Manager | Eurostar

    Great course but somewhat challanging working through the course material, jumping around to find questions. Some of the example questions were not clear.

  3. Karl Gwilliam | IT QA Lead | Deloitte

    The training was excellent

  4. Robert Gale | QA Manager | Deloitte

    Very good course, current circumstances aren’t great for classroom based learning and would have preferred to be face to face but Rosie did the best she could. Material is of a good quality
