Training Coordinator, Leonardo Helicopters

“From my perspective as a Training Co-Ordinator I find that the website is easily accessible and shows, at a glance, those who have not completed their courses. I am also notified immediately via email when a delegate completes and passes the course as I am sent a copy of their certificate. It is immensely helpful…
