It was the most informative online course that I ever did, and I gained not just knowledge but confidence too from the course.

I really enjoyed this course. It was very well run and there was a great balance in the content. It really engaged me, and I look forward to using what I have learnt and all the ideas in the classroom. Míle buíochas!

This was definitely one of the best EPV courses I have completed to date. The content was very interesting, relevant, accessible, informative and most importantly useful. The mix of content across all modules and the manner in which it was broken down and structured was also very good. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
