5 out of 5 stars

I enjoyed the training and as there was only 2 of us in the class it felt like a 1-1 session. Sal was an excellent teacher and understood that we had little knowledge and was very patient and very helpful. I am not over keen on the manual that was bound on one side and not easy to open up the pages and follow. Wire bound would be better.
