    I didn't notice the audio being a distraction. I enjoyed both presenters. The information in my opinion is very useful to my client base.

  • by Paul Matthews on Jan 28, 2016

    Content of the course is good, however the audio is terrible when Amanda takes over, the audio fluctuates up an down all the time to the extent of it distracting. To be honest I found half way through her presentation I had to turn it off, lucky I I knew 90% of the questions in the test, but that's not the point, I would like to have listened to it fully incase something is mentioned I did not known.
