company testimonial

“We have worked with Blue Novation since at least 2006. We have always found them to be thoroughly professional and always willing to adapt their products to meet our needs. They continue to support several big IT rollouts and have taken the time to understand our requirements before suggestion learning solutions.

Our learners have always provided excellent feedback about Blue Novation’s courses, trainers and facilities and I have personally recommended them to my colleagues within other local authorities in Suffolk.”
