"It was four days of slide after slide on powerpoint. The 5th day I revised in the morning and took the exam in the afternoon. There was only one time we did something, which was a resource diagram and other than that the trainer simply read the slides. We were asked to do question examples each evening, which meant I didnt have time to digest the large amount of content squeezed into each day. I hadnt been shown how to do a histogram or an S curve and this question came up on the exam. We did not use any of the workshop pre reading sessions. We had not been advised how to answer questions and I am not happy with the way the course was delivered. " - 06-06-2012 16:21

Format

This course is a 5 day workshop with an exam on the final day. Topics are consolidated by practical exercises, which help the delegates to relate the subject areas to work based scenarios.
