I found the course really interesting! Andy was an excellent tutor and took the time to help me through anything I didn’t understand which you don’t always get at training courses, it made it feel much more personal and helped with any nerves I had.

Luckily the group were such lovely and welcoming people, they really helped me through it so thank you for the photo.

The CCTV Foundation course is well structured with a combination of presentation and exercise. It offered me a unique experience to work on actual equipment which is practically interesting and cannot be done elsewhere. The tutor divided the typical system device by device, e.g. camera, cable, recorder and etc., and broadly introduced them individually with plain language. So I did enjoy the course pretty well.

Thank you for providing this course which is really helpful for my career development.
