        Excellent Course

        As someone new to the HR role, this course was very informative. The information covered was just right. Not too overwhelming, yet very informative.

        I haven't taken the courses yet.

        I am enrolled for July. I'll inform you then.

        Training Good but everything else felt like an upsell.

        The trainers and training itself was good - a good refresher course, nothing more. However, about the 2nd or 3rd day I realize that there is a test and they are trying to upsell me on a possible retake of the final test. I asked questions about the test, how long, what's the format, how long do I have to take it, what is involved etc. etc....None of those questions were answered. I paid for the live training and now I keep receiving emails about an upsell for the on-demand training. Still not sure what is going on with a "Test" but there is more upsell for products than actual training. I doubt I will do another course with this group.
