You will need to bring a laptop (windows or mac) as the day will be hands on as you will get to practice on a test website that we provide and that you get to keep for 12 months after the course ( longer if you wish). Complimentary tea & coffee are provided throughout the day and a cafe is on site for those wishing to purchase lunch.
