“We have used Blue Novation for a couple of their advertised courses – feedback from the participants had been really positive and has helped the attendees in their current roles.  We have also used them at our own premises to deliver a range of Microsoft courses (at different levels).  The team is well organised and punctual, but more important their delivery style suits our staff and our organisational needs.  We would not hesitate to use them again.”
