    Training was made as realistic as possible, great quality educators. I completed this course following Cert 2 and 3 of security operations. I’ll be returning again for Cert IV Government Investigations in the near future.

    Please pass on my thanks to Craig and Neil for their assistance in completing the course. Some of the material was “Virgin territory” for me and I enjoyed the way their knowledge and experience was put over in a straightforward common sense way. Regards. DC
