Course testimonials:

  • I enjoyed the fact that our trainer was well-prepared and attempted to keep the course on track. She tried to accommodate different levels of experience, and students' differing backgrounds. She used modern teaching methods. She went out of her way to help a student who is relocating soon to Switzerland and will need the knowledge.
