DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD...
I enjoyed the course and the method of delivery - thanks to the team that delivered it.
Just passing on my compliments for quite a well-run session over the past two days. These webinars are not always easy to deliver with that format, particularly over the course of entire days. However, I certainly did not feel disadvantaged or that I would have missed out upon understanding in any way. I also noted the tech support from the MINRES team was quite responsive to the inevitable connection problems and kept us corralled quite well.
I just wanted to say a big thanks for all your hard work. Location, timing, costs and learning guides were excellent.
I got a lot out of the modules. The training delivery was excellent.
The workshop was run very well.
