What our participants think

Testimonial A

“I thought I knew a lot about energy already but the course really helped me properly understand the issues and how important it was that I helped sort these out. I’ve started turning off everything at home and remind everyone at work to do the same. I’m happy that I’m helping make a difference.”  Katie Thompson – Marketing Executive
