Virtual Learning Feedback: Superb! All good. Happy for all.
Virtual Learning Feedback: Fantastic course and extremely well run.
Virtual Learning Feedback: Excellent course.
Virtual Learning Feedback: The course content and the way of teaching is amazing and the way Alan explains things, it stays in our head. His knowledge is amazing and we definitely benefitted a lot from his experience. Only if the course duration could be increased it would be amazing.
Virtual Learning Feedback: This is the second time I've done this course. I must say I've got more from KBAT than your competitors. I foound the course work much more pertinent to the exam than the previous course I did. I also found Alan's tips and knowledge on the mathematics side of things second to none. Thanks!
Virtual Learning Feedback: Have spoken about this course to colleagues. I believe it is very well done. Thank you.
Virtual Learning Feedback: This was the best diving related course I have ever taken. I think the online training was very helpful and would not go anywhere else for training.
Virtual Learning Feedback: Alan is a great teacher. I have done the learner ADS before with another school and can honestly say the way Alan explains makes things a lot easier. I feel it's been a great course.
Virtual Learning Feedback: I have done university lectures using Zoom / Teams in the past, and I must say you are at a different (higher) level when it comes to using the technology and it's possibilities to further the learning experience.
Virtual Learning feedback: The course content, the presentation, study material and Alan Rhodes all add up to a great experience. Thank you.
Virtual Learning feedback: Whole course was very good. I learned many things about my course. It will be helpful in my field. Thanks for all the staff of KBA Training Centre.
Virtual Learning feedback: I have been really impressed with everything so far, so thanks very much indeed. I was a little wary of doing this course in an online environment, but the set-up is excellent and I'm struggling to see how it could be any better had I been in the classroom in person. Alan is top notch, so hopefully I can do him / justice in tomorrow's exam...!
Virtual Learning feedback: Very good and perfect set-up.
The way of teaching, explaining calculations and many ways to find the answer. The trainers' way of teaching is excellent. Good environment.
The instructor maintained discipline and good time keeping. Good at teaching how to solve physics of diving problems. Very good and easy way to understand. Need to come here for practice before you sit for the IMCA exam, this is my view.
The thing I enjoyed the most was the instructor. He's very knowledgeable and very lively.
To be honest, I enjoyed every detail taught to us during this course. So much of the basic knowledge which generally you dont get taught outside of being here. I thoroughly enjoyed it (I'm a happy man).
Having done five training courses with KBAT so far, I must say that Alan Rhodes is one of the best instructors (having done three of my courses with him).
Very good. Friendly instructor with good knowledge, so made it easy.
It was a pleasure to have Alan teaching.
I enjoyed Alan's joke. Very well conducted course and Alan is simply the best.
Way of explanation was excellent.
Alan Rhodes is one of the best instructor, superb teaching with excellent explanation.
Thank you so much Alan Rhodes, for the wonderful course! I was amazed by your deep knowledge in diving and your fantastic pedagogical abilities! You are an excellent teacher! Thanks again!
