“The readings were excellent and I have put them in a binder and will refer back to them again and again. The instructor was excellent and gave me some good tips about reporting. The E-mail function on the site allowed me to interact with other reporters.”
“Having never taken an E-learning course before, I liked the fact that I could log on to the course whenever and wherever I wanted.”
