    A great course, it was a pleasure to meet the “Grand Master” Paul Pearce again, learned a lot, it was great fun too. It was also great to meet other carpet and upholstery cleaners , everyone sharing stories and advice from own experience. Alltec have a great selection of tools, machines, and products on display, which you can try and buy while you are there. Lunch was yummy too 🙂 I cant recommend it highly enough!!!
