The whole system was very easy to access and use…right from my home!

I was very impressed with the way it was easy to follow instructions and learn the materials online without any major problems. This was a refresher course for me and at the same time I learned new things that will help improve my awareness on laboratory safety practices.

Overall excellent experience. I would like to see more trainings offered online like this one

The interactive portion was great – it helps you remember more.
