“I do not have any recommendation to improve the course as it covers off on all relevant topics. It is an interesting course and provides good awareness for line workers. The last module is particularly beneficial to new line workers.”


“I don’t have recommendations for course improvement. I really like the examples cases on mitigation. I definitely recommend this course for other lineworkers.”
