"I have just returned from the IPAF training course I attended today at your office and while it is fresh in my mind and before the normal tasks of every day make me forget. I wish to thank you for the service you have given, from the initial enquiry to the taking the course the service has been exceptional. I have also received very positive comments from the 3 operatives who attended yesterday. "
