“I can’t fault the level of training and support I received from Lindsay and Malcolm at Your Excellency Ltd. I received face to face and virtual training to achieve a recognised qualification and both were presented in a professional, friendly and comprehensive manner. The support and guidance I needed was always to hand. This was the first qualification I had undertaken for around 30 years so I was a little apprehensive. That was all laid to rest with the belief and encouragement I received from the trainers. I am so proud of myself and would highly recommend Your Excellency Ltd to all.”
