I use AutoCAD daily for up to 8hrs depending on workload, since the course I have been able to complete jobs in half the time if not quicker. I have been able to unlock more of AutoCAD than I even knew existed. Your company made the whole experience enjoyable. We were met at reception and escorted to your suite, at the Electric Works, by the very friendly Elliot. He ensured we were inducted, watered and happy. I would recommend Armada and if we require further training for staff, you will be the first port of call. Thanks.”
