I was blown away by how organised the workshop and training area is. Throughout my training I always felt comfortable and was never afraid to ask questions. The team’s passion is infectious and the skills I learnt have meant that everyday when I come into the grinding room, my work always meets the same high standard. I feel very lucky to have received such thorough and in depth training from experts who know how to teach in a way that is easy to understand.
