Course Reviews

  1. Good Job: The course is down to earth.

    Videos are clear and message is straight to the point. The modules are well organized. Illustrations on concepts are clear enough with practical examples to match them. Review questions present to assimilate concepts.

    It will be great to have a lead auditor training course online too.

  2. Great course. Clear walk-though of all topics.

    It was really a pleasure to participate and I may even do it again some other time to refresh my knowledge.
    The small videos are great.
    One small suggestions: It would be good with more complex cases. Also I suggest you make Lead Auditor Training if possible.
    Thank you Very much.
