First, apologies for resurrecting an old thread... I'm just coming off a
month's paternity leave.
But I do agree wholeheartedly with all of Anestes' points. I don't know how

the last two years and have actually developed both basic and advanced
training courses, with the company's cooperation. You can find more

Take care,
