"Hello John, Thanks for last week - I thought the course was excellent. All of the feedback I have had from the guys involved was very positive...
For the range of knowledge and understanding of the participants nobody felt left behind or bored waiting for others to catch up - which is often very difficult to do. I believe that your initial presentation was an excellent foundation for everyone in the course. Personally, I now feel confident to use the program and to update it following each monthly vent survey and to use for modelling potential vent changes etc. All in all I thought that you did an excellent job - one of the guys actually told me that he thought you were the one of the better trainers he had had for a course. Thanks John.

“As part of the regulatory body it is important our skills and expertise remain competitive with the rest of the industry. Ventsim is a critical tool in the modelling of ventilation systems and also enhances the learning fundamentals of fluid flow dynamics.
All people involved in making critical decisions in ventilating underground mines should be able to have an understanding of ventilation modelling software. The course by John Rowland catered for beginners and was interactive allowing a hands on approach for all students to work at their own pace to develop a ventilation model, fault find problems, change parameters to achieve different results, and was presented in an enthusiastic way motivating the class to exceed expectations of the planned course content.”
