Thanks for offering the weekend website development course. The instructor, Jay, was a very good teacher. He was full of information, but did not make the course too overwhelming. He was very helpful and friendly. Overall, I learnt a lot and it sparked my interest in learning even more.

Our website was redesigned and we saw the returns straight away. We get more phone calls than ever. Our budget for Yellow Pages was well spent in redesigning our website.

My laptop died and I bought another one through Harvey Norman. We got Jaytech to help us with the migration of our Emails and Business Data. They also set up an user friendly Backup System which works automatically or with touch of a button.
