“Alyssa had thorough knowledge of the course, was patient while answering questions. Provided additional information and sent relevant links. Punctual and above all LISTENED PATIENTLY!”

“Doing the course online via Zoom was a new and somewhat challenging experience for a person who is not overly technical ( I don’t even have a smartphone!). However, the course facilitator, Alyssa, was understanding and very accommodating of my needs. Alyssa’s delivery of the training was clear and to the point. She was encouraging of the participants and ensured good interactions between participants despite the limitations of a live online training forum. I finished the course feeling a lot more able to cope with the demands of my new role as an ACFI coordinator.”
