This method of training is very helpful to me as it means I can do it in my own home at my own speed in my own time this is a vital thing in my job. Well done for introducing this method of training it takes all the strain out of having to go to a venue at a set time, make arrangements for the people I support and find the time to commit to the training

I liked the challenges as they helped point out things that I need to know, and helped me to remember more. It’s a good way of learning
LR 23/05/2014
It’s better than going on a course because I actually have to read everything and answer all by myself where in a course I can just nod and say I understand
KD 13/05/2014
Yes it covers everything all the questions I had, I enjoyed doing this module although I did thoroughly read through it, so it did take me longer than what you said, but I feel this module has been the best and more thorough one on here. Thankyou
