  7. Jessica M. (verified owner)

    Thought the course was an excellent alternative to taking people out of the business for extended periods of time to be trained. Unfortunately it is a presentation that doesnt have any narrative and I found the answers to some of the questions a little strange to say the least. That said will be putting my team through it in the near future.

  8. Ken J.

    Straightforward and easy to follow, and as easy to complete. From start to finish in about 60 minutes which was good.

  9. Matthew H. (verified owner)

    Quick to purchese , and complete also ! good explanation of details .

  10. Hollie C.

    The course was simple to purchase, and the content was perfect for what we do day to day. The only thing i would like to see in the future would be a verbal training as you go through the screens. As learning is better when both written and verbal instruction is given. This would then cater for employees with learning difficulties i.e. such as reading.
