To be honest, this was my first online class. I am looking forward to taking more online classes. The course was well paced, and pitched at a level which allowed me to learn quickly, and in depth without becoming to bogged down.

Very in-depth course, I learnt so much and the way it was set up to teach you was excellent, I highly recommend this company and hope they offer more in the future, education is so important.

Great course, very helpful and informative.

Thank you for a very informative course. I'm sure it will be very helpful for me in my role. I found it well paced, well structured, well worded and illustrated, especially as I have limited prior knowledge in this area. I enjoyed the course and learnt a lot.

The online Chemical Awareness and Spill Training course was relevant to our workplace. It was easy to navigate and the simple enrolment process for 11 of our employees is a good option where they can complete it in their own time.

This course was really well presented, easy to follow slides and information. Pace was very good and it was good that you could replay slides if you needed to. End of unit quizzes were great as they showed if you needed to review information. I would recommend this course to other school Laboratory Technicians.

The Workplace Chemistry online training tool was a great option for our remote-site personnel. The training session was relevant, easy to access and use, and Rob was helpful and prompt in communicating with us.

I found the course to be very educational, it contains plenty of valuable information, is interactive to keep you engaged, is provided in an easy-to-follow format and uses terminology that could be understood by those with less experience in the field through to Health and Safety Advisors. I would highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to gain knowledge in chemical awareness, spill training and the relevant WHS regulation, or for this who work with chemicals, or manage staff who work with chemical.

The course is well presented and well paced. Nicely structured and the content is highly understandable, without the detail being overwhelming or inaccessible for the knowledge check quizzes. I would highly recommend for laboratories and enviro's with reach in to the hazchem space, as well as workers on sites using or handling these products.

Well worth doing and applicable for both the education and rural sectors that I work in. Case studies were extremely interesting and informative.

The course was easily accessible and I learnt a lot in two hours, rather than sitting in a room for 6 hours in front of someone talking to 10-15 people. I gained a lot of knowledge from this course. Thank you.

I really enjoyed this course! It was very easy to follow and I loved the interactive aspects of the slides to keep me focussed.

The feedback I have received so far is the course is easy to navigate through and people like how it’s broken into sections. I found it very informative and well delivered.

I really enjoyed this course. I work in a high school science laboratory and found it most helpful in understanding the differences between chemical registers, manifests and placarding. It was great to see examples of chemical spills both large scale and small scale and to see the destruction they can cause, and to see how to clean them up. I appreciated the quick email response when I was having trouble with my login. Thank you!

This course is excellent. It is easy to follow, understand and very user friendly. I found it to be a great refresher course as well as learning some new information.

A very clear and concise course. I would highly recommend this course to others in my workplace.
