IQCS Training -Train the Trainer

Mission accomplished.. the first training ran smoothly!

15 trainees attended the course and they seem to enjoy it and all took away some points to consider. It was lovely to have a group covering the country- England, Wales, Scotland and NI.
A Massive thank you to everyone that helped get it together especially Adam for the printing/binding and Jackie for all the logistical help/lunch.
