Lots of time was provided to discuss subjects and ask questions. I Found the group activities and discussions very useful and a good way of learning from others experiences.

Course content delivered in a manner that is easy to understand and absorb. Made to feel extremely welcome by trainer and course provider despite my lack of knowledge and understanding for course content at the beginning. Extremely knowledgeable course and would recommend to anyone looking to further their understanding.
