Very extensive, it really allows us to project its use within our organisation. The trainer did help in that sense by guiding our reflection towards the training content application. Very broad and dense topic.
The course covers all important aspects. We always coud ask questions or ask for more explanation. Thank you for this excellent 2-day course. I've really enjoyed it.
