I got a lot out of this course. TBH I was a bit skeptical going into it, thinking I was already fairly confident taking photos on my iPhone. I was hoping to perhaps learn a tip or two but didn’t expect a lot. How wrong was I! At the end of the session I walked away with many new techniques and learned a couple of features I didn’t even know were on my phone. Adam - the trainer - was relaxed and provided lots of info. I never felt silly asking questions and the smaller group size meant we all learned things relevant to our particular phone. I would definitely recommend this course. 😊 5/5 by Karen Jacobi 17-11-2019

I really enjoyed this course. Adam was very friendly and generous with his advice. He ensured that we all understood the concepts he was explaining before moving on to the next topic. I was also pleasantly surprised that he tailored his advice to the specific brands of phone we were each using, so I never felt overwhelmed or confused about which menu option I needed to use. 5/5 by Amanda Osborn 25-7-2019

Very good. I was pitched very well at the level I was at. 5/5 by Millie Nelson 12-3-2018
Highly recommend this course. Established goals early and catered for a variety of requirements. Adam related well to everyone in the group and had a great mix of info and practice. Understood that mature age group prefer to be shown rather than just click around to find their way at least in the first instance. Didn't try to get us to do too much, too soon. Excellent morning, great intro, time well spent. Thanks Adam 5/5 by Helen Hobbs 10-2-2018
