I am pleased that people are satisfied with the courses they have completed (Echo Jan 30, page 9).

I was certainly not satisfied with the computer course I took. During the second lesson I said to the tutor that I didn’t think I’d gain much from the course if they didn’t give me notes. Their cavalier reply that ‘they don’t pay me enough for me to give you notes’ stunned me into silence.

Eventually we were given notes but not very useful ones, such as What is the internet?,  but no operating instructions whatsoever.
