      "I understand the modifications to the course were needed due to Covid but i felt it was a little haphazard in how the information was presented. Jumped around a little bit. As it was a refresher course it did not affect me, may have been difficult for a new learner. Presenter was engaging. Enrolment was super simple and reception staff lovely."
