Thank you for the opportunity to let me enroll in this Course. It gives me the understanding that I really need to be updated on the present situation. The time alotment is very ideal for working person like me.
I like that this is an online seminar that gives us 30 days to complete, which is a huge plus when you are working full time, you can even go back and repeat the points or lesson that you want. The speaker is also very commendable, he explains every lesson in a way you can easily understand even if you're not a Psychology major. This seminar is very helpful and something that you can use not just in work but in your day to day life. Congrats to Sir Argao and Smarterone for coming up with this insightful innovation!
Very comprehensive and insightful training. It would be more interesting if you incorporate vignette in each chapter. Congrats to the speaker😊
