    "I really enjoyed the experience of a virtual course - having not taken part in training delivered this way before, I was pleasantly surprised at how I found it. I didn't feel there was any detriment or adverse effect on the quality compared to if it had been delivered in person. I found the day to be engaging and very interesting."
