Feedback received from previous online courses:

The delivery in the morning along with the group sessions with a trainer in the afternoons worked extremely well

It was a great course. I really learned a lot last week. The quality of teaching was fantastic.

I thought the delivery was excellent and the chance to discuss things in break out groups with other trainers was very beneficial. The technology worked well and was easy to use.
