The instructors were absolutely great, pushed us out of our comfort zone to learn. The course was brilliantly organised with all the shop gear available at best. Great experience overall.

Il corso è stato superiore alle mie aspettative x organizzazione, argomenti, livello di preparazione dell’istruttore. Vorrei solo suggerire che il libro dovrebbe essere consegnato un mese prima dell’inizio del corso. Il corso è molto intenso e dopo 8 ore tra pratica e teoria è complesso riprendere a studiare. Per godere a pieno dell’esperienza occorre aver la possibilità di studiare in anticipo. Grazie x la vs professionalità

Tutto era interessantissimo e svolto in modo egregio. È stato superiore ad ogni mia aspettativa: gli istruttori, l’organizzazione, gli argomenti ecc. Però c’e una cosa che vorrei sottoporre come spunto di osservazione: il libro dovrebbe essere fornito un mese prima del corso. Il corso è intenso e serrato, è difficile studiare dopo 8 ore di teoria e pratica(sotto un sole caliente). Mi sarebbe piaciuto godermelo in maniera più rilassata avendo approfondito in anticipo gli argomenti. Vi rigranzio e mi complimento x il vostro ottimo lavoro.

The whole course was amazing. I improved gradually my knowledge and gained a lot of experience, which I can pass on to my future students. The examiner was great and did a really good job, even though, the wind conditions were not perfect. I am happy that I chose to complete the course and I would recommend it to any person who wants to have solid background as an instructor.

I generally like the ITC very much, yet printed materials are good to be improved. For example, printed materials were in black-and-white, while some of materials are great to be presented in color. This relates even more to Assistant Instructor Manual. I would like to thank my Examiner for doing great job in promoting clear and positive approach for teaching.
