 “We are not only Sage trainers, but we are practising accountants and bookkeepers as well.”

“I met Jackie through my work as a Careers Adviser and manager of the redundancy programme for Careers Wales, subsequently I recommended JDH Training to many of my advisers and in due course their clients. When ironically I faced redundancy myself, I turned to Jackie to retrain as a bookkeeper. I found the course interesting, stretching and dare I say it fun, due in no small part to Jackie’s sense of humour.

The problem with most learning is that it’s from a book or a computer or worse still a CD, so it always deals with perfect scenario’s, JDH Training is different, as Jackie is a practising accountant, she brings the real world to the classroom, hence the humour, so prepares you properly for what you will face and gives you what you need to make a success of your new direction. I am now a self employed bookkeeper, enjoying what I do and doing what I was taught – so thanks Jackie for preparing me for the real world.”
