Very interesting course, really enjoyed it and can't wait to return for part 2. It was great to have physical examples of cables, terms/joints and tooling to hand out.

This is my third time at EA Technology and I'm very pleased that I have attended again. Look forward to the next time. Only comment, I would have liked more discussion on testing cables on site.
