Feedback from previous eID workshops

"I really enjoyed the size and diversity of the course"
"Well done - time well spent - thank you!"
"Great workshop, covered a lot of areas that I did not know the background theory. For example Gagne we use some of the model but not all - now I can use all and it will make things a lot easier!"
"Very clearly delivered and all information was relevant"
