I thought the course was great, easy to use and simple to follow.
…saves so much time being able to access the course when and where you want rather than taking valuable time away from the workplace.

This course was actually fun and really well designed i wish all courses were like this well done!
I think that this was a very good idea to outline the foundations of the course itself.

E-learning I feel is going to be the way forward.
Invaluable tool for refreshing knowledge.

Was easy to understand and use and gave evidence and discussions on the course without going off the track.
Very informative, great to have links to supporting documents.
