The course was easy to access and provided an excellent amount of information presented in an easy to use and easy to read manner. The course organisers were friendly and helpful and made the experience an enjoyable one. I can wholeheartedly say I finished the course with a much better understanding of the subject than I had before. All in all well worth it!
I really enjoyed the course. As a Graduate coming in to the water industry, I found the course very helpful and easy to understand. Will definitely recommend it to any new starters in the water industry.
