“I really enjoyed the cheese grading course, it was a real eye-opener for me and gave me a great grounding in it all so thanks again.”

Modern work and the rule of the accountant has diminished greatly the knowledge base that is “Grading” and your commitment to providing a grounding and forum for our job is without parallel.”
