Testimonials

The graphics were very good and helped me to take the written information in. I also thought that the practice questions at the end of each module were a good idea as it was helpful to recap on what was learnt in the module. It was very easy to navigate the modules. This is one of the most interesting (both written and graphic content)e-learning courses that I have completed.

I like that the system can be accessed again and again so you can complete small bits of the module and come back, or do the whole thing in one go.
