Customer Care Training - Marc was very clear about all the teachings. I feel like I knew a lot about the course but he reiterated everything so well for me and helped me remember to improve some bad habits I have picked up over the years. Very interactive and constructive. It exceeded my expectations.

20 Day R&H Skills - Course is very informative and interesting, teaching practical hands on skills and techniques such as how to take an order, how to carry and clear plates, how to make beds and clean bathrooms properly. I hope to get a job as breakfast staff when I finish this course. Fiona the Tutor was excellent and my classmates and I get on very well and made course fun & entertaining. I would recommend this course wholeheartedly. I also learned to appreciate hospitality staff more.
