"Tony is very knowledgeable and ensures that everyone has a chance to take part in the discussions and activities.
I was worried that I would have difficulty following as I am not computer literate but I was able to log on easily and follow instructions"
I feel much more confident after the training. I enjoyed working through the worksheets and scenarios and found Tony to be clear and comprehensive in his delivery
Great course. Found it helpful and came away feeling I had more knowledge on the subject. Will highly recommend.
