The delivery of the training, presentation methods and clarity of information were all superb. Driving whilst being impaired is a serious issue and, whilst our employees have always been engaged, the positive response we received after the training reinforced the fact we had made the right decision. They felt safe to discuss their individual decisions and readily took part in exercises and asked questions.
