Reviews

  1. Janie Zimmermann (verified owner)

    The online-interactive training was a great way to experience face-to-face training and allowed for good discussion and learnings while being able to participate in online activates directly related to the training. The content of the training was exceptional, as was the trainer, and I personally got a lot out of it. A refreshing alternative to classroom training.
