“Over the years I have undertaken multiple CAT and GENNY training courses and I had thought I was pretty well versed
in how this tool worked. Since attending the CSTA 1 day course I had my eyes opened to the reality of how to use this equipment properly.
A huge emphasis is placed on the importance of the correct use of the GENNY and also the limitations of this equipment.”
