I had a wonderful course at ITA, truly a awesome place, thank you to Claudia who assisted with the admin and course booking, she made it a really nice process to go through, and it was super easy, then a big thanks to Alexi and Frans, they were my instructors during the course and made it a pleasure to attend the course, they made it interesting, offered alot of help with questions, and were super friendly, they really made it super easy for me to complete and pass my course, I tip my hat off to them, it is not always easy to put anxious mind at ease with courses like this, but they did it perfectly, they are willing to help the students no matter what, I will definitely be looking into joining the club as they have peaked my interest, thank you to everyone at ITA
