  • “An excellent course providing vital information to subcontractors such as ourselves. I wish I had been on this course much earlier!”
  • “Since the course we have a more effective credit control system that means our cash flow is in a much better position. Thank you!”
  • “This course really opened our eyes to how the payment system works and what we can do to ensure payments are made to our advantage. We are in much better control of payments and by monitoring them closely means we are getting a better percentage of payments on time plus interest on those that are late.
