"This was my first experience of webinar-based learning and was excellent. The trainer was excellent and the course was delivered in a user-friendly and efficient way. The pre-course material was also very clear and along with the opportunity to carry out your own self-assessment this really helped to reinforce was what being covered, making the final exam a very straightforward task and giving me confidence to use this tool with clients."
