This course proved really helpful and useful and the trainer was exceptionally good. The course has helped me during a challenging time for my company during implementation. This would have been a 5 out of 5 if I was able and had the opportunity to attend face-to-face which is my preferred learning style - this does not detract though from a very accomplished course delivered online.
