What our customers have saidIt gave information needed and got straight to the point instead of being sat in a training room all day when it could be achieved in half the time was fast and efficient
It was great that I could do the course in my own home. I have a young child which keeps me busy, but when I had a quite moment when she was napping etc I could quickly access my course and complete some more work. Brilliant! Hopefully there will be more
I liked the fact that you could do as much of the module as you wanted and then continue where you had left from.
