  • Tempdent provided me with the most amazing help and support during my training. My assessor, Lynn really helped me through my course, she was very easy to approach. She had some brilliant tips and hits when it came to revising for my exams and I managed to qualify in just over a year which I do not think I could have done without such a great tutor. When I was really stuck on a project Lynn would make an arrangement for a support call where she broke down the project in a way I could understand what I had to do
