“I have had only positive (team) feedback from the training. The online facility worked really well, the pace of the course was well planned and the content and delivery were excellent. Everyone found the course very engaging and interesting.”   Brian Mulcahy, Quality Engineer and Batch Release Manager at Trinity Biotech

“…Both myself and our Quality Manager learned so much from this very interactive training course. The Zoom video links and tutorials were the best we have ever had. From signing up, to testing IT links and through to the training course itself was so professionally managed by SQT. Well done again and thank you”  Michael Delaney
General Manager, Emeri Nutrition Co.Ltd

“..really informative,..right on track in terms of content. The instructor was expert enough to go off script and answer individual questions about specific industry needs….instructor was a real expert, very engaging…break out rooms and group exercises worked better than in person…really enjoyed it…”  Eugene Canavan, Medical Design Director, Design Partners

“…training course was as interactive as any classroom training, through the use of highly effective presentations from the tutor and the use of virtual breakout rooms……the pace of the course allowed participants to not only complete training on the day, but also facilitated the day to day working requirements which is critical in these extraordinary times. I would recommend this format to any business going forward.”    Julie Lambert, Head of Technical & Quality, Kersia Group

“…first time as a group to use the virtual training…it was very impressive, the technological part was handled very professionally by SQT and joining was very simple, the training itself was highly interactive and worked very well for us, Denis as always ensured everybody participated.”    Paul Murphy, Assistant Group Technical Manager, Rosderra Irish Meats Group

“…this was my first virtual training course and I was unsure of how it would work, especially with keeping the audience engaged but there was no need to have worried. John (Lafferty) was an excellent trainer and his use of Zoom, including the breakout rooms kept all the course attendees engaged throughout the day.”  Fiona Vaughan, QMS Specialist, Stryker
