"I am really enjoying it. I am working on a plan at the moment and the clients keep adding and changing things. It is so easy on CAD and since we are all on email, it is much easier to get them to look at new versions and give feedback without having to wait for an appointment with them.
I am looking forward to the 3D modelling."
Sarah Jones, Room Outside Landscapes Limited

"The online training course is great. The instructors are very clear and concise with everything so it's easy to understand and mimic when I attempt it. I must admit it can be a bit much to remember it all but I think I just need to use it and the many functions more often!"
Tristan Brunell, Megadeck Australia Pty Ltd

"Over a year ago I invested in (a competitor product) and the tutorials and learning curve with that program were rediculous. I was never able to get even one plan done with it. With yours I can crank out a plan rather quickly - ...its' very user friendly... the additional tips and tricks in the level 2 training i finished last week are brilliant. I am even more productive than before and very pleased I invested in the extra course. I think it may even be better that the first one. Is that your voice on the tute's Nigel?"
Jean Alwood, - Designer
