Gwen Lawrence, ConvaTec Group

"I can't fault this CER course, the delivery was excellent, as was the content and especially the trainer Rod.  He clearly knows his stuff and that's what makes all the difference. I only ticked prefer in-person training because sometimes it's good to get out of the office and do training in a different venue and I would rather meet the trainer in person. However this virtual training was the best I've ever done and I could find no fault whatsoever.  I'd definitely recommend this course to colleagues."

Claire Stapleton, ConvaTec Group

"I really enjoyed the course, so many things finally clicked into place for me and I now feel much more confident in writing CER's. Worth every penny. Thank you so much!." 

Lucy Welch, MediMark Scientific

"The course was great in confirming my current knowledge of Clinical Evaluation and expanding on this with the requirements for MDR. Rod was a great tutor full of knowledge, advice and enthusiasm for a subject which can be pretty dry!" 

Ash Pallister, RB

"Thoroughly enjoyed the 2 day course! Rod was very insightful and knowledgeable, with a great grasp on the MDR. It was a great experience, that I would highly recommend to any medical professional." 

Malene Landauro, Coloplast

"Rod was a great communicator and had set up a really good programme. You could feel his passion for the field and his vast hands-on experience. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone working with clinical evaluation"

Karen Ring, Linde 

"Virtual training is a great option but it does depend on the subject, for this course it was ideal. I found the course was very informative and has given me a lot of assistance in planning how we move forward with clinical evaluation and ensuring ongoing compliance with the new regulations. Thank you"

Anglea Harrison, Sysmex

"The course was very comprehensive considering how large the topic is. I learnt a lot more than I expected to and the knowledge of the lecturer was excellent with a lot of hands on experience and advice." 

Alan Barclay, Terumo BCT

"Fantastic to have an instructor with subject knowledge that was able to relate to the experience of participants. Presented and delivered at a good pace to allow understanding and ample opportunity for specific questions."
