There were around 10 delegates who took part in the training course, all of whom were software engineers. The course was a success, relayed to us via feedback forms and comments left by the delegates:

“The quality of the training was extremely high, and the coverage of topics was broad and applicable to what was required.” SJ, Principle Engineer
