“I think the training met all of my expectation. Not only the practical aspect was useful and entertaining but I believe that the content touched throughout the presentation was very well organized, very relevant to our needs and interesting. The only thing I would suggest is to update the training practicals since it results daunting for everyone to follow instructions that are incorrect.”
Maria Jose Bonta Suarez, Cardiawave France

“I did appreciate the introduction to the GUI interface, which I have ever been reluctant to use.”
Simone Cecchini, CPA Elettronica Italy
