The training course provided everything that was expected with access to the course supplied really quickly from the point of ordering. It was the convenience of being able to access the course at a time that suited that I found most helpful. Not having done much structured learning for a while, this self-paced course was just about right. I would be happy to recommend this course and award it a 5-star rating for my overall experience.
