~ Kristin Alne, Marathon Oil Norge.
Excellent course, this would be beneficial to others whether they have zero experience or 20 years.  I learned more about thinking logically. Ie: If I did this, what would happen etc. Instructor was excellent, didn’t make a fool of you and would always discuss in detail any problems. Also food was best and everyone in the office made you feel very welcome. 
~ Paul Forbes, Taqa Bratani
Colin was an excellent lecturer, getting you to think all the time of why you are carrying out your actions, getting you to justify them. I would say best course I have attended, use of practical simulation was excellent and not once was there death by power point presentation. 
~ Paul Forbes, Taqa Bratani
Worthwhile course with a continued theme of high standards. Well presented. Possibly the best venue I’ve ever been to. As an operator who has not spent time in a control room for three years, this course got me really thinking like a CRO. Initially it was difficult to change my mindset from outside operator mode but eventually I recalled the CRO thought process and enjoyed the course.
~ Paul Flaherty, Taqa Bratani
Really enjoyed the course. Content was fantastic, right level of basics and further details. Simulations were a good way to learn by doing. Fantastic lecturer, very knowledgeable, entertaining and had a captivating presentation style using his industry experience and stories to add to course content. Class was run with very good interaction and allowing questions.
